The spring concert season continues to be hot and heavy, and this week there are sort of “sold out” shows you can still get tickets to, and a couple very Sold Out shows that you’ll have to experience vicariously through your friends who got their tickets sooner. We’re talking about 100 gecs at Franklin Music Hall, and Indigo Girls at the Appell Center’s Strand Theatre, which have no tickets available, and haven’t for weeks. But there’s plenty going on; here are 18 concerts to see in the next seven days, all around Philly. Tickets and information can be found at WXPN’s Concerts and Events page.
