Shows That Matter
By Artist

Here's the next four weeks of shows in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area that may be of interest to one Altrok reader or another. (Someday, it'd be nice to expand this beyond the NY area, but this'll have to do for now.) Since this is an automatically generated list, the following caveats apply:

  • All dates are subject to change.
  • There may be typographical errors, so be careful.
  • Ultimately, if you call the box office and they say something different than what's listed here...they're right. So call the box office to confirm, m'kay?
