Why hello there, friend. This year, at least in Columbus, Rocktober really lives up to its name, so I figured you needed the game plan. This is all tentative, as you will notice some nights that have two or three possibilities, or shows that would be nice but won't happen, like the Pixies. But if you would like to see any of these shows, feel free to let me know, as well as if you have any other ideas. Rocktober is a helluva thing.
