Some shows that are coming up, winter 2012

sean rowe

Sean Rowe's back -- and he's playing a show in February.

There are people who like to go to concerts. You may be one of these people.

There are also people who just like to know that there are concerts. You might be one of those people if you're not the other kind of person.

Either way, you will be interested to know that these concerts will be happening in the Capital Region. And during the next few months.

Here are those concerts...

This isn't a comprehensive list. If there's something not on here that you think should be mentioned -- please mention away. Some of these shows have already been mentioned. We didn't think you'd mind.

He's dreamy.

January 27: Thurston Moore at Helsinki Hudson
Sad that he and Kim Gordon split up. Love his story about meeting her: "Believe me, she was unbelievable when I first met her. She wore this sort of hip prison-stripe outfit and flip-up shades on her glasses. She had a ponytail, a little ponytail that was sort of center at the back of her head and I thought, 'That's the coolest f------ person I've ever met.'"

January 27: Charlie Albright at the Massry Center
Young star concert pianist with "jaw-dropping technique."
