I went to college in Connecticut, and students there called January "The Dark Ages." February was called "The Darkest Ages."

Many of us feel the same way about this brutal winter — especially brutal if, like me, you grew up near Los Angeles.

But though music can't soothe inversion-influenced coughs, it can provide something to look forward to.

And the best news? Most concerts at Red Butte Garden, The Gallivan Center, Pioneer Park and Usana Amphitheatre haven't even been announced yet.
