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 (LINK), my Twitter lists (LINK), and the Do's and Don'ts of Concert Attendance (LINK).

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.
