I seem to be stuck in a voice range rut. I'm a tenor-baritone, but want to be able to sing the higher pop stuff. What can I do to increase my range?

I assume you mean that you want to be able to sing the "higher pop stuff" not in your head-voice (falsetto)?  I'm guessing if you're a tenor-baritone you already have a pretty good falsetto voice.  To develop a fuller high voice I would suggest doing whatever warm-ups you already use, when you find the point that your falsetto breaks, hangout around that point and work your break up and down and then go back down your range in the warm-up.  Warm-up to your break again and play with it some more.  As you do this over time, the muscles supporting your larynx will strengthen and allow you to push your chest-voice range up and potentially even find that golden "mixed-voice" which will let you do just about anything you want with your voice!  Hope this helps you out!
