Lately, i've been really bored since I haven't been able to do much due to being sick. So i've been going thru a bunch of stuff I have kept over the years compiling some stuff for possible inclusion on this blog in the future. Basically, this blog will feature old faded pics, crusty flyers, show listings, record reviews and other things dealing with Sacramento punk and other places of interest.. Maybe even some mp3's from time to time. I know I have enough stuff to keep this blog going for many years to come and thensome. Yes shirley, I have that much Sacramento punk-related crap. Combined with the "History Of Punk" CD-R series I'm doing I think it would be something people might enjoy. Anyways, just something I always wanted to do? Anyone have any opinions on it?
"Sacramento stuff?" I hear you say. "Do you plan on adding any other stuff that's non-Sacramento?" The answer is yes I do! Didn't I say "other places"....hehe.
Here's a sneak preview of some things that might will part of this blog. Included is a listing of shows that were at Club Minimal in the early eighties.
