Syracuse, CNY and Upstate New York Concerts: Guru List

1

Since there are so many upcoming concerts I figured I’d compile one big list to help you pick and choose. I scoured every single venue website to put this thing together. As you may know by now my tastes tend to fall under the rap and electronic genres, but I’ll make sure there’s something here for everyone. I’m always writing about Westcott Theater concerts and I’d like to broaden the focus a bit. On this list you’ll find everything and anything you might like to see. We’re covering Syracuse, the greater CNY area, and Upstate New York as well. Sometimes you’ve gotta take a drive. After the list you can find directions and ticket links from the various venues. I’m keeping the prices unpublished here, but expect the normal $25-100 range. Ticketmaster and Upstate Shows will be most helpful. Items in red are Guru top picks. Get planning!
