Ever see one of your friend’s Instagrams of band you love and get a serious case of “fomo” just because you didn’t know they were on tour in your city?

Well fear no more. Knock that “fomo” out of your life and look below.

Here is a list to all the concerts happening in Upstate NY, courtesy of TuneLab an Upstate rock station, most are alternative rock concerts curtsey of the link above but I found some others that might intrigue you, curtsey of

I’ve bolded all of the ones I suggest, italicized all the ones in Ithaca, and put an * next to ones that I found on other websites.

Some concerts to look out for (in my opinion!):

a699fd45848c28093e090301b450f341Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness w/ New Politics:

These two bands have created some really great songs. New Politics, a Danish indie rock band, similar to Neon Trees, Cage the Elephant, and Twenty One Pilots. Their song “Harlem” which came out in 2013 was and still is a great jam. They are a great compliment to the main artist, Andrew McMahon. The indie pop artist, created an entire album for his newborn daughter just about a year ago. You probably know his song “Cecelia and the Satellite”, and should definitely know his other music as well. Highly suggest this concert and I can assure you, there will be some great music played.

Grace has had a top spot in my favorite artists list for many years now. Her stunning and powerful vocals pair fabulously with her pop-rock music. However, I mostly highlighted her as an artist and as a concert due to her ability to put on a great show. I have seen Grace perform two maybe three times before and every time was better than the rest. She really engages the crowd and gives a truly outstanding performance. I would definitely check her out and give her concert a go!
