shows that i have been to
(& shows that am going to)
since august 1995. i didn't keep track of shows that i went
to before that. i wish i had. make note: things listed in
THIS color are not shows. they are music related
(see: dance nights, listening parties, etc.), but a
live band did not play. if there is a + next to
a line, that means that the show is/was
more than an hour away from me.
