Central Phoenix Porch Music Venue 528 Reside Is Transferring to a New Handle
Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of the New Times free.
The name of the central music venue 528 Live in Phoenix is based on the address of the house where the porch concerts are held: 528 West Granada Road.
Now the name stays the same, but the place changes.
528 Live owners Alison Daniels and Nick Harper announced on the venue’s Facebook page this afternoon that they are moving to a new home in the same neighborhood.
The new address of the venue is 541 West Palm Lane.
Daniels tells Phoenix New Times that the couple love the Willo neighborhood and wanted to stay there; Your new home is just down the street and bigger with more updates.

However, the new home does not have a veranda. While Daniels and Harper build a stage and put lights up in their new driveway, 528 Live will have a temporary home.
There are 528 live shows across the street at 537 West Granada Road for the last three Saturdays in March.
A neighbor offered to host the shows while the couple got the new performance space ready, Daniels says. She believes the transition will help the audience adapt to the new location.
“It won’t be that shocking,” she says. “When people walk down Grenada, they’ll see it’s just across the street.”
The three shows that will be staged in 537 West Granada are Palo Brea on March 13th, Nolaz Band on March 20th (with Gumbo and Jambalaya for sale) and Vinyl Station on March 27th.
The shows begin in Palm Lane on the first weekend of April. As always, attendees should bring their own chair or blanket to sit on, and while the concerts are free, it’s a good way to put some cash in the virtual artist tip jar.
