Holy smithers, it was 15 years ago, right after Shadowmaps!
  6:24pm Blob Dobbs:

Volume sounds much better now!
Avatar 6:26pm geezerette:

This has to be a regular show, can't believe it hasn't been part of the lineup for years.
Avatar 6:29pm kimzilla:

You're on the phone app, Tim? It cuts off comments after several lines. Your first comment appears just fine in the web browser. Good luck with your band!

it's hip to complain about hipsters.
Avatar 7:04pm northguineahills:

  12:29pm Marty "Farty" Escalante:

I wish I had listened live to call in with a gig trouble story. LIke the time in Slovenia who let us play at his theatre as a favor to a friend but then didnt do shit to promote it, when he could have easily gotten a lot more people to show up. The show was good, but afterwards some of his friends complained online when they found out we played there and mad at him for not having known before!
