I typically provide information about music in the five counties of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Tuolumne, Amador and Calaveras. On occasion, I will post events out of the area, I do this as a favor to bands who live in this area and are performing elsewhere. Please do not be offended if I do not provide statewide coverage.
