This Just In: Concert Announcements

Posted By on Tue, Feb 26, 2008 at 7:48 AM

Lots of big acts this week – 52 new shows, in total – but you’re hard-pressed to find one cooler than Kimya Dawson, formerly half of Moldy Peaches, who wrote those cool songs from the Juno soundtrack. Other don’t-miss shows include grand-scale postpunk from My Chemical Romance, prog-metal from Dream Theater, the entire lineup for Tri-C’s JazzFest 2008, and the Proclaimers, who would still walk 500 miles, if you're wondering.
