No go shows

Winter is generally a slow concert time in Chicago. I can't really blame artists, I wouldn't want to be touring through the northern part of the United States in January and February. A few brave souls do, however, and with the money crunch before and after the holidays, I'm not seeing any of them.

I keep entering contests to no avail. Apparently all the luck I had in October means no luck in the winter. I've not managed to come into money that I feel I can spend on concert tickets. This makes me very sad. So, if I had money, here's what I would be seeing. Most of these aren't must-see artists for me, but I'd still like to see them. Instead I'll be sitting home, writing my dissertation, knitting socks, and watching sports on TV.
