What is the best way to monitor the schedules of speakers, bands, shows, or other things* of that sort so that you don't miss them when they come to your neck of the woods?

So, this recent FP post
got me thinking about how sad I'd have been if this lecture had been in my area and I had missed the opportunity to see WB speak in person.
Actually, this is all the more relevant because Nick Offerman actually did come and speak at the university my fiance attends and we didn't hear about it until after the fact. She's just not in the loop as much because grad school keeps her head down on work instead of paying attention to incoming speakers and such.
Back on topic, is there a way to monitor the tour schedules/calendars and have a centralized monitoring and/or notification system setup such that I would know about and be able to obtain tickets to said event?
Clicking around websites whenever I think about it stinks and isn't all that reliable due to the human (me) factor.
*Examples of what I'm thinking of when it comes to things I'd like monitored: A Prairie Home Companion
, Carolina Chocolate Drops
, Wendell Berry, Andy McKee
, Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me
, Christopher Moore
, a local beer festival, and so on and so forth.
