You missed all the shows at the fox theaters such as Regina Spektor [10/30] and Monsters of Folk [10/17] though you seem to have a The Fox tag… so that’s kind of confusing.

Also, The Get Up Kids @ The Fillmore [9/21]. But maybe undergrads are too young for that

And, for good measure, Frightened Rabbit + The Twilight Sad + We Were Promised Jet Packs @ The Independent [9/18]

One more thing, you should probably just use sonicliving — show announcements in your area by band you like just magically appear in your email box. Sifting through venue pages/newspapers is so 2004.
