The first is logistical: information comes in too late. So for these "lost sheep" we have, as many of you know, our regular "too late to list" niche. The second problem is judgmental: what to do with concerts which for one reason ot another just fail to qualify for our daily listings. Hence this new "honourable mention" category: for .traditional concerts (classical, jazz, new, world) in , alternative venues, and "non grata" concerts in our usual venues ....
