September is coming in like a freight train! Check here for ALL of your entertainment options for the entire month!

A few notes: 

  • Click the event title for more information (where available).
  • I'm listing as many local band gigs as available, but they're always changing; check our Friday music listings every week to see where all of your local favorites are playing. Regular weekly gigs are included at the end.
  • Classes, etc. aren't included in an effort to keep the list (a bit) more concise.
  • Major national movie releases are listed, but limited releases that aren't expected to arrive in Amarillo on opening day are not. Check the weekly Movie Watch column for up-to-the-minute details.
  • This list is fluid. Check back for updates, and check the weekly event roundups every Thursday.
  • All listings are subject to change.
