Shameless Self-Promotion

I work at an independent record store. I enjoy it, but it's not my love.

I book shows around Lubbock. I like to see a venue filled up with friends and new faces, all excited about the show taking place, but there is still something I am more passionate about.

I started booking bands independently last year and have since found it to be one of the most enjoyable, challenging and non money-making jobs I have taken on. Maybe one day this line of work will allow me to buy Kelly more Pantone mugs or a lifetime supply of black bean and avocado burgers, but for now I plug along, simply trying to get bands I believe in shows all over.

Two of my acts just started East coast tours, three have just released new records, one is in Gwyneth Paltrow's backing band in a new movie, one recently celebrated their ten year anniversary and all of them are working hard and making music I'm proud to try and get in front of others. I am genuinley proud and honored to be working for these people, and I want to share them with you.
