1. When does Third Coast Theater have live music?
We typically have shows once or twice per month. All shows are on either a Friday or Saturday night.
2. When do tickets go on sale?
Tickets for our shows typically go on sale between one and two months before the date of the show. Many times, shows will be announced on our website and Facebook page before tickets are officially on sale.

We use a will-call list for all pre-sale tickets. For proof of purchase, you can bring a printed version of your ticket (emailed to you by Ticketbud) or a SmartPhone with a scannable image of your ticket. If you do not have either of these items when you get to the door, we can also look up your proof of purchase using your name.
