While music has always been a major part of my identity, concerts haven’t. I would occasionally see an artist I liked in a big venue, or even less frequently attend an Allston basement show in college, but it was never really my thing. In 2019, one small punk show in Pawtucket Rhode Island helped me see what I was missing. That night would go on to inspire a year of new music and constant concerts.
Now it’s my thing.
Below is the list of all the shows I’ve went to since graudating from college, up until COVID-19 ruined everything. Through string&&loop I’ve been foruntate enough to work with a few of these artists to make custom socks, which has been a newly-realized dream come true.
Special shoutout go to Prince Daddy & The Hyena, Oso Oso, Sinceer Engineer, Just Friends, pronoun, Future Teens, Microwave, Ratboys, Diet Cig, Soccer Mommy, Frances Quinlan, Retirement Party, and so many others whose shows I was supposed to see in 2020, but were cancelled or indefinitely postponed.
When it’s safe, I’ll once again be that awkward tall guy just outside of the mosh pit, blocking everyone else’s view because I got there early.
