OKAY I'm clearly terrible at updating this. If you want to find out what shows are coming up, your best bet is to friend me on facebook. Or follow my instagram (where I usually post a photo of my drums and the gig details 5 minutes before downbeat). I'll make a mailing list soon if I can find 3000 cups of coffee to drink all at once, thereby gaining the superhuman motivation necessary to complete tasks like this.
