Shows are coming back. Here are six new-ish venues to keep an eye on.

The thing about live music in Atlantic City: it happens, and it’s often quite good. Scan the calendar and you’ll find shows by Erasure, Erykah Badu, and Mandy Moore in the coming months. Thing is, those are all happening at casinos, which aren’t necessarily the most appealing environment to watch a concert. Enter Anchor Rock Club: a 650-capacity space that got its start in fall of 2019, and closed up shop six months later. In its new life, former Johnny Brenda’s talent buyer Chris Ward is steering the ship, along with his old cohort Greg Mungan, as well as former Franklin Music Hall marketing guru Reid Benditt and South Philly Taproom’s Adam Garbinski. –WXPN
