It may only be March, but we've already brought you a number of reviews on great albums released this year, and a look toward a whole slew of records that are set to make waves in the scene during the coming months. But hype isn't the only thing surrounding all this new music. With fresh tunes always come fresh tours. So check out our list of can't miss tours happening this spring.

  1. Can’t wait to see Manchester Orchestra in Chicago! I heard they put on a killer show. Everyone needs to go see them! Have you checked out their free download on their website? Makes me want the 5/10 CD release to come even sooner!
