So much music, so little time

There's just a lot going on, and it gets tougher every day for your lowly promoter/servant to keep up with it all... BUT here goes:

Bearfest 2012 is now less than a week away (September 5th! at The Fishbone in Vienna, WV.)  I'm parched from licking the envelopes to mail out tickets ordered through .  Someone can feel free to purchase me some liquid refreshment of the adult-ish variety at the show! 

The Pop Evil show (September 14th, also at The Fishbone) is just over 2 weeks away now.  That lineup has been expanded greatly (by some great bands I might add) including Noise Auction, XFactor1, & Betrayed By The Bullet!

Beyond that Lansdowne has been announced for October 7th at The Adelphia in Marietta, OH, and we've just added the Black Bourbon Devils  to officially make it a party.  Still looking to add another band to round out the lineup.  Yes, Shaggy I promise to keep it down to a Three Band Max!!!  Thank you for your tolerance!

Tickets for all of these shows are available at The Sound Exchange on Murdoch Avenue.  And hey, while you're there pick up some CDs, vinyl, posters, t-shirts, etc... and show 'em some love.  Tickets are of course available here on the website (look up.)  Tickets for Lansdowne can also be purchased from the fine folks at The Adelphia.  Tell "Big Paper" I sent you and that I said hello!

Now, I could stop there... and be very proud of the up-coming shows and the roster of entertainers headed your way.  But that wouldn't be like me now would it.  So, let's just say that I've got a commitment for November 17th, 2012 already.  And that we're working on some December-ish stuff too. 

So hunker down, save your pennies... and enjoy the show!

Lansdowne returns to the MOV

I'm so happy to be able to announce that LANSDOWNE is coming back to the Mid-Ohio Valley, this time to The Adelphia in Marietta, OH on October 7th, 2012.  This is a group of guys that make great music and are all smiles when the show up (even at load in!)  No lie... even as they peel themselves out of the tour-mobile when they come to town, they are joking, smiling and have always greeted me with a handshake and a pat on the back.  That may not seem like much to some of you... but it's a positive attitude that I find infectious and it flows right into the music they make and the fantastic performance that they give EVERY time they hit the stage.

I'm proud to know them, and glad I can still bring them to the area... before they just get too big for us to manage!

The show is so new... that I'm still working on adding the support bands to it.  We may even run a NFL football game tie-in for the day all for one low price.  As soon as we work it out... you'll know.

Tickets are just $10 for the show and are on sale now, here at (look up top) at The Sound Exchange on Murdoch Avenue, and I'll have tickets delivered to The Adelphia in Marietta later today.

Thank you all for your support!

Pop Evil 9/14/2012

I know I mentioned that Pop Evil was returning to the Mid Ohio Valley already, but I couldn't resist doing it again, especially since I get to attach the show poster.  She does make me smile...

But enough about me, Pop Evil returns September 14th, 2012 to The Fishbone in Vienna, WV,  Tickets are on sale now at The Sound Exchange on Murdoch Avenue or right here at  As soon as we confirm the support acts joining them for this leg of their tour, we'll announce it here.  So stay tuned, but why wait?  You know this show is going to be jam packed. 

See you there.

Bearfest 2012!

Hope it was worth the wait, but last night at the Bear-B-Q... we finally got to let the cat out of the bag on BEARFEST 2012.  September 5th, 2012.  What a fantastic lineup:  Black Stone Cherry, Nonpoint, Cavo, New Medicine, Surrender the Fall, & PXR at The Fishbone, in Vienna, WV  all for $20. 

And as if that weren't enough we announced that on September 14th, 2012 Pop Evil is returning to the Mid-Ohio Valley as well.  They just can't get enough of the fans of this area.  You rock, and they know it.  The rest of that lineup will be announced shortly, so stay tuned.

It's been tough keeping these secrets for so long.  Tickets are now on sale for both events here on the website, and as always by our good friends at The Sound Exchange on Murdoch Avenue.  We hope you'll join us.

Let's do this thing...

I've waited patiently... no let's do this thing.  Bear-B-Q is tonight, at The Fishbone in Vienna, WV.  Someone get me my PIC-I-NIC Basket. 

My boys from Janus, Red Line Chemistry, and Otherwise are on site and ready for beer, bbq, and the obligatory melting of faces.  Setup and soundchecks in progress.

Once Cruz, XFactor1, and the Liecus juggernaut rolls in, it's GO TIME.  Doors at 4pm, and Liecus kicks us off at 5pm, sharp.

Tickets will be available at the door.  You don't want to miss this great show, plus we've got some surprises in store for you as well.  Come ready to rock.  Stop in and make sure to say hello!
