Two stages, three nights, and more than 40 bands will comprise the 41st Annual Decadent Cabaret. Local bands from every genre and sound will perform March 5-7 at Brickhouse Pub & Grub at the Labor Temple (2233 Birch St., Eau Claire). Doors open at 6pm Thursday and Friday and at 5pm Sunday and performances will run into the wee hours. Every year, this event brings together artists and music lovers of all stripes, including lovers of pop, electronic, rock, metal, rap, hip-hop, and everything in between. Concert-goers will enjoy old favorites and fresh faces alike. This event was originally scheduled to take place at The Metro, but a recent fire that caused $150,000 in damages at that location forced planners to find a new venue. Organizers secured the Brickhouse Pub & Grub as a backup location, celebrating the improved parking options and the cool space. Each night’s cover is $12 at the door, while discounted three-day passes are available at the door Thursday night. For more information, check out
