updated 7.11.19
nerd count: 131 listed shows

all of these shows have been all ages, sliding scale, and no one turned away for lack of funds.

note: presently, i do not back or even like all of the bands i have booked. some bands have members that have since done really fucked up shit! not all show spaces that i did shows at are places i back now either. listing a band or a show space is not an endorsement, it is just a documentation of something that occured.
