Welcome to THE ARCHIVE

This is a complete, in-depth portrait documenting my journey throughout the greater Boston music scene and beyond. Big concerts, small concerts, local band and national bands, each and every one has been an important piece to me. And this is how I show my appreciation to them all.

Within you'll find complete lists of every concert I've been to, every venue they've taken place within and every band/comedian/performer I've seen. Digging deeper within is more detail, as much as I documented at the time, including notes about the specific concert, set lists for each band (once I learned enough of their songs), pictures of the bands performing (starting with any concerts from 2012 on) and videos of full songs (some of these videos are unlisted on youtube and here may be the only place they'll be readily seen).

For anyone who's made it here, I hope you enjoy these fragments of "history".
And for members any of the bands featured here: this space is as much to document for you as for me. All content is yours to use as you like, contact me if you'd like anything additional. As well in the spirit of an archive, the actual band pages are ripe for any information you'd like to include; whether that be a biography, a history, a list of band members (both current and former), etc. Pass along whatever you'd like, this is a space for that information to survive for as long as I keep going to shows.
