The World Has Turned and Left Me Here... without concert tickets

I am following my favorite band on Facebook and Twitter, and somehow I still missed that they're performing a gig near me tonight. How can I track when my favorite bands are going to be performing near me?

In general, as I have learned, these bands are not posting things like, "Tour dates in x, y, and z cities!" on Facebook and Twitter.
I live in a smaller city, and most acts play concerts in one of two larger cities near me. I'm old, so I'm most excited about 90's and 00's alternative bands that are still together and touring - usually they show up at bigger venues.
I'd like a notification that the bands are going to be playing in my area, rather than going to check a website (which I will definitely forget to do). I'm hoping this can be part of my regular information stream (which is email, fb, twitter [although I miss stuff here, given the nature of the site], MetaFilter, and sometimes Instagram) OR be easily add-able to my information stream (some kind of app?).
How do you know when concerts are coming to your area? How do you keep up with tour dates for different groups that may or may not be touring all the time?
