April! Yeah! Honestly it’s 2 am and I don’t have anything clever or witty to put here. I’ve been coding for hours (poorly, some of the text is doing strange things I don’t understand…sorry) and I just want to go to the beach. I imagine I will update this later when I am feeling less dull and more inspired.  As always please let me know if I missed anything or if your band is playing this month in the area in the form of a comment on this post.  I will get it up asap. At the speed of Pegasus! Unless of course, I do actually make it to the beach. Then, fuck it.

Concert calendar! Yay! I’m excited to get these started again. I make these because this is the kind of thing I would like to come across if I was to Google “shows Olympia” or “concerts Seattle” (which I have many-a-times and until now, no avail). I have a vision for these bad boys. I want them to become sort of a community posting place where local bands can put up their upcoming shows and where anyone who knows about a cool music-related event can drop me an email or a comment and I will add it for the world to see! So don’t be shy. C’mon now, free advertising on a blog that for some reason I don’t understand, people actually read. Check back often!

YES! October! Full of costume parties and candy and  lots of moments that make you go “Oh shit, I’m pretty sure this is how most horror movies start…”. If all of those exciting seasonal things weren’t enough, Seattle is swimming in musical talent this month. So, LOOK AT THIS. I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t benefit from taking a peek, not to toot my own horn or anything. As far as the horror movie thing goes, you’ll probably be fine. Just don’t hang out in groups where you’re the token black friend or engage in sexual acts in any dank forests after dusk.

As always, if you find anything else or want me to feature your band on this calendar drop a comment! The more people that add to this calendar, the better and more inclusive it becomes.



ALRIGHT, listen up. If you are going to read anything on this god forsaken blog it best be this. FOR REAL. You’ll be happy you did.
At the end of each month I am going to attempt to create THE MOST inclusive and easily navigatable concert calender in existence for the upcoming month. Now you shouldn’t be disappointed because I personally haven’t found anything around up to my terribly low standards (What gives? Now I have to make one myself…ughhh). Anyways. Feast your eyes. If you don’t find this incredibly helpful, well, you are probably hopeless.
