Events At Fox & Goose

Live Music & Events

Fox & Goose is a legendary pub and music venue that has brought a distinct underground flavor to downtown Sacramento for almost 40 years. From indie pop to Americana, to acoustic folk, reggae, bluegrass, rockabilly, rock & roll, and jazz, you can expect an exceptional night with performances by many local and nationally touring, up-and-coming bands and songwriters. Our intimate space gives you an up close and revealing look at some of the best local music. Stand at the bar and take it all in or grab a booth in the restaurant area and enjoy it from a distance. More like seeing your favorite group in your living room, rather than a regular music club, the Goose transports you to old England where the local pub is a traditional place for a pint, a chat, and some lively entertainment.

Weekly Overview

On Monday nights it’s Sacramento’s longest running Open Mic.

Tuesdays we have a fun Pub Quiz that keeps you in touch with all that useless information, but never fails to stir up conversation.

On Thursdays you can expect an acoustic solo singer-songwriter night, whereas Fridays and Saturdays tend to be full bands for a more exciting and lively weekend party.
