Circle Takes The Square

Submission sucks when it comes to equipment. They don’t have the best acoustics and equipment in the house but they have really cool shows.

CTTS did really good last night considering the awful set up with the venue. I stuck around during their whole set and appreciated them more than the night before at the Gilman. They’re definitely worth catching live if you get the chance and they’ll put on a great show no matter how bad the venue can be (as long as they have their instruments of course).

Dowager definitely set the bar high for everyone last night. They took the cake and ate half of it, sharing it with CTTS only.

Anyway, I made some new friends, saw some old friends, and stuck with the best friends. Overall a fun night. Except for the part where I almost missed the last bus home, that was not cool.

Thanks to Carlos for booking a sweet show. You’ve definitely stepped your booking game lately and I’m proud of you!

I wonder if anyone actually bought that $75 lightbox?

EDIT: THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT

——— BAKE TONIGHT, REVOLUTION TOMORROW ———

How did I forget the two lovely ladies selling the vegan treats from last night?!

Did anyone try those donuts for $1? If anyone had purchased that lightbox well it would’ve been wiser to buy $75 worth of donuts! Or spend that on them cupcakes? Ohh what the hell, BUY ONE OF EACH.

A broke kid like me was able to buy enough treats to make me happy throughout the whole show, I even had some to take home and share with a couple of friends who came over tonight. They rule. They rarely show up for shows, but when they do, be sure to buy em.

(Was going to make a diabetes joke but diabetes isn’t funny)

P.S. Sophie, I never got that donut before I left… You owe me a donut…

Quick Update:

Hey all, I know the blog / booking collective has been slow lately, my apologies. The fall has been slower than expected. Currently working on something for the Winter though, and I’m excited to see it come into place.

As we all know, the end of the year is coming up quick and that means its time for everyone to express their thought for their favorite releases of the year. I have a bunch of records that I’m debating for with slots on my top 10. Ranging from records my friends have put out, to records of bands I don’t have the pleasure of knowing.

As we go into the new year, I hope to expand the booking collective experience into a bigger spectrum. I’m working on connecting with more agents to bring the Bay Area some bands that we all know and love.

In the mean time, my homie Matt (Aleutia) has been booking crazy good shows at the 654 House in SF. Honored to be working with him in joint to help bring some awesome shows to the city. He’s providing a house spot for all you, so respect that and let’s keep it alive for as long as possible. Just recently, my favorite house spot in Santa Rosa was closed down, and its a bummer to see it go, but some of my best times were had there.

Anyways, keep an eye out for my opinion on my favorite records of the year, and other stuff that may be occuring.
