    I don't post about much here other than tour dates for bands who I enjoy listening to in the hopes of spreading the word so others might want to be in the know.

    I almost always begin the post with "More dates TBA" unless it's specified in the press release of said band that there will be no more dates added.

    Without failure, on nearly every thread, someone will reply "BUT WHY AREN'T THEY PLAYING (INSERT MARKET NEAR WHERE I LIVE HERE)?!?!?!?!?!?"

    1. Calm the frig down.
    2. Take a deep breath.
    3. If you don't see a show near you, repeat after me: More.....dates....to....be.....announced.

    Will any given band play your hometown? That depends.
    If your hometown is New York City, I'd say you've got a good shot.
    If your hometown is Millinocket, Maine, I'd say you've got a better chance of hitting the lottery.

    Now, back to your regularly scheduled complaints and grievances.

    Love,
    Me

    You must be new here, seriously, do you expect people to really read your thread, apply logic and think before they reply??! Who has the time for that? Ignore the fact they may spend 10 minutes writing a reply that makes no sense or the answer was in the original thread; come on already, the nerve...

    Any word on Wolf Alice dates by the way? :(

    My peeve... posting pictures without identification. Maybe I'm out of the loop, but I have no idea who half the people are in some of the pics. Name, please?

    I thank you for posting these threads.
    In the time it took for them to ask you (like you work for the bands) they could have
    looked up the band.

    Thanks again. I have seen some shows thanks to you .

    I appreciate the tour date threads. I've caught a couple of heads-up that turned into good shows. Thx 617
