So, there’s lots of gig guides around, not not like this one. This is a gig guide of the events that tickle our fancy in some random sense. Think of it as a gig guide that excludes Nickelback simply because they are Nickelback, and for no other reason. If we missed anything, let us know and we’ll add it to the list.
