@ke11en_it My initial thought was "If they open for Spafford for more than 1 show on a tour then they get a 'Check Out' post." I'm going to continue to do that AND I'm going to keep this forum open for you guys to fill in other suggestions. When I do a "Check Out" post I'll feature it on the homepage here: https://forum.spaffnerds.com/
I get what you're saying about keeping a clean slate but I think there's a tremendous amount of value (for me personally) of somebody "in the know" pointing me in the right direction. For example, VBD is fucking amazing, but I might send a new Nerd to Slip and Squander, All In, or Shake You Loose. Each is far more accessible and increases the likelihood that the new Nerd will catch the fire.
But shit... who am I to blow against the wind. And ideally the thread will evolve naturally including suggestions about the band's work, just as this thread has.
@ke11en_it super glad to have you on board. Every one of us helps shape this community into what it can be and what it is. Much love brother.
