Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2018-05-04 - Nola Republic, New Orleans, LA

Wake up 4am. New Durham, NH. The Live Free or Die State. Responsibly head off to work and achieve for 3 hours. Leave instructions for coverage and proceed to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts so that I may board the Aluminum Albatross and ferry passage to the Big Easy...New Orleans, Louisiana. Apply lubrication to the mind and soul. So far, we are off to a splendid beginning.

The Spafford of Arizona is performing two late night shows to close out Jazzfest and today is the release of their album, “For Amusement Only.” Months ago, when the shows were announced, I was of...

So Spafford dropped the latest single off of For Amusement Only today-- Ain't That Wrong. It's linked up through an article on Relix. It's so difficult, and perhaps meaningless, to pick a favorite Spafford tune but gun to head (as @603Brett likes to say) ATW is my boo. So needless to say my expectations were high for this studio treatment. And needless to say I'm a Spafford LIVE fan first, Spafford RECORD fan second. But, wow, they really really really did a nice job with this one. The sax section fits perfectly...

Setlist, Recordings, and Attendance for: 2018-04-21 - Variety Playhouse - Atlanta, GA

When Terminal West sold out in under two minutes it was obvious this show would be special. Then Variety Playhouse sold out in under a minute. I got lucky and got my ticket the first go ‘round and was stoked for a solo trip down from Massachusetts, just for this show.

I ended up expanding the trip a little with a three-day 420 wristband. Caught their day set and the full day Saturday. I have never been to the Playhouse and time spent in Atlanta has been minimal to this point. I h...

Nerds! Today is the 1 year anniversary of the launch of Spaffnerds.com. And so we begin the next chapter.

We have also spun up a much anticipated and requested Spaffnerds Store where you can get your official Spaffnerds gear.

A Year, by the Numbers
This infographic by @Cody pretty much says it all. When we hit 1000 users t...

Nerds! In celebration of the anniversary of the launch of spaffnerds.com we are giving away a pair of 1 year nugs subscriptions! Next Friday 4/20 marks the 1 year anniversary of the day I took a deep breath and hit "go" on this amazing experience.

Story Time
I built the initial site in about 3 months time. It was barely more than a database with a web UI on top of it. There was no forum, there was no show tracking, let alone stats. There was, however, a solid collection of shows from the Archive and YouTube, and a community that I knew would want what I had to offer. In the year since, thanks to your input, we've added some cool features and developed what I think is a pretty solid offering...
