Further performance information can often be obtained by checking the individual web sites of the concert venues. Since our webmaster is Ohno Gordo (real name: Soso Gordo, but he changed it because he said everyone kept calling him by the other name whenever he showed up), it should surprise no one that "links" to the other sites have not been included except in special cases where a guest web master has shown up to help out.
