Billings Music Scene is on the map
The Billings live music and entertainment scene has grown over the last decade as new local venues and promotors brought year-round shows to venues large and small: First Interstate Arena, Pub Station, Alberta Bair Theater, Craft Local, and Thirsty Street Brewing Company. Music Villa has made a name for itself with large touring acts while also becoming a hub for musicians across Montana.
