Monthly Music Calendar - November


Your blogTO music writers sure do enjoy bringing you our weekly "Hot Ticket" concert picks, but it makes us - and puppies! - cry when we can't get the info to you quick enough and a show we recommend sells out. So in an effort to keep our readers one step ahead, we're introducing a Monthly Concert Calendar, that we'll put up for you the first(ish) of every month. You see a show you like, you get tickets while they're hot, WE ALL WIN.
