Hello everyone, I hope you had a great summer and welcome to the second segment of the Spafford Six-pack Series on Spaffnerds.com, Oktoberfest Edition. For those you who remember the Summer Six-pack, we will be keeping a similar format, but this time around we will be focusing on Spafford shows from the month of October.

Nerds, we are super excited to announce an AMA with @Jon-Rose on Friday 9/22 at 2PM Eastern. This is a chance for you guys to ask Spafford's primary print maker about... well... anything.
