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, here's another roundup of concerts that will be happening in the Capital Region during the next few months.

Starts the week of September 28, runs through the end of the year. 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.) There are bound to be noteworthy shows announced for this period later on. And there will also be a few that are canceled or rescheduled. Check the venue's site before heading out.
