A highlighter is good to bring--it's a lot easier to see on a schedule. I always go in with a priority list, highlight who I want to see from most to least (avoiding time conflicts), and write out the entire schedule in free space on the paper. If you don't have a smartphone, it's a good idea to set bands you want to see to "Send to Mobile" on twitter the morning of the show. That way you can find out about signings, acoustic sets, etc. while you're waiting in traffic or throughout the day.
