grantjonah: If you got some iTunes gift cards on Christmas, check out my new game on iTunes. It’s a good little time waster for a cheap price of $.99.

We focus primarily on small bands and small theatre shows — not cool ones, but mostly the friends of my boss: blue grass, swing, kid’s theatre, everyone way old or way young.
