Clockwise from the left: Phantogram, Trombone Shorty, Sean Rowe, Sleigh Bells.

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.

Runs through February. 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.
