UPSTATE NEW YORK LIVE MUSIC GUIDE

(severely in need of updating, I know)

Caveat: This is a very subjective, selective guide that is focused on
(1) rock/pop/soul artists I like or am eager to check out and
(2) venues within driving distance of Oswego, where I live. Cities closer to Oswego are listed first.
While I plan on posting lots of links to concert calendars and clubs, this is not to be confused with a comprehensive concert guide.
If you want to send me any listings, great, but I can't promise I'll post them.  My e-mail: ranjit dot dighe at oswego dot edu.
All listings are for 2012 unless otherwise noted.  Shows I'm planning to attend are listed in bold.

Dan Smalls Presents most of the area shows that interest me, so this is the site I check most often.
