We’ve thought for a while now that doing just one big event a year isn’t enough. We want to have opportunities to dance, hear great bands that may not have been featured at the festival, put on events in collaboration with other communities–and generally to put on great shows we dream up that sound fun to us and our friends. So, to start…
