Welcome to Transistor's Recordings page, where we offer a selection of live performance recordings from our Friday night music series and other in-store and off-site recording sessions (all of it presented in reverse chronology below).

Most Friday nights at 8:00 Transistor presents music performances by local and touring acts. Check the Events page for upcoming shows.

Transistor has also produced the off-site live-performance recording series The Transistor Session. That series replaced the Sunday Session. Recordings from both are available below.
