Music This Week: September 30 - October 6

Get those concert reports done sooner rather than later. This is a sampling of upcoming events in Knoxville, Maryville, and Oak Ridge. Other concertgoing tools: Facebook events, my Twitter lists, and the Do's and Don'ts of Concert Attendance.

Check back throughout the week because I constantly update the blog as I learn of events. All events without specific ticket information are FREE. Remember that some venues have an age restriction; I will post this info when I have it.
