Part of the impetus for this site was to give myself a more sensible platform for sharing the ( hundreds if not thousands of ) concert photos and videos I've amassed over the course of my show-attending career beginning circa 2012. Mostly, I regard this collection as reference material, maybe helping the reader to gauge my own music tastes, venue preferences, and aesthetic sensibilities in determining whether or not you wish to give a damn about anything I write. From a music discovery standpoint, I helpfully include links to band pages, album reviews, and venue sites throughout the collection as is relevant. Lastly, it serves as a nice diary for me, giving me an excuse to sift through my experiences for the best shots, arrange them under a reasonable theme, and list them chronologically for my own memory-jogging and enjoyment. Make no mistake--these are not particularly great photos, resolution wise. I'm not oblivious to that. These were almost all taken via iPhone cam
