I'm looking for a list of the most notable people ever to perform at Symphony Hall in Boston. Anyone from 1900 to date.
I just moved to Boston and don't know much of anything about it's history as a music town. I mean I'm generally aware of classic rock bands being from Boston, and then Mission of Burma, but what else? What books, documentaries, websites, magazine archives, etc should I read to find out more about the Boston (and surrounding area) scene? [more inside]

Is there an efficient way to find upcoming music events in the greater Boston area? The Phoenix's website is totally retarded, and there seem to be way to many venues to make searching one at a time worthwhile. I'd also like to be able to weed out 'led zep cover band with standing gig at Irish pub' type things and look only for unique events- mostly in the alt-rock/pop genre. Thank you, Bostonians!
