Des Moines Punk Rock Takeover

The Have Nots Poster

Oh yes the Punk Rock the curse and the joy of my life. That evil mistress that first called me many bad ideas ago and still makes the hair on my neck stand on end. Though my musical taste may have branched out over the years, it's still the bench mark and maybe that was what is was always meant to be. It wasn't so much a movement as much of a standard to which everything that came after should be held to. Maybe I'm prejudicial because though Punk might not have not been my first musical love interest, it's been my longest.

How will I know when my piercing is healed? You have been religious about your soaks/compresses, cleaning and you've become as anal as a surgeon but you are still unsure if the piercing is healed. The thing is that often the piercing may seem healed but isn't completely healed and one of the number one causes of infection and other problems is ceasing the aftercare before the piercing is healed.

Now a Talent Buyer at Lefty's Live Music

Lefty's Live Music Sign

I'm excited to announce that I've been hired as a Talent Buyer at Lefty's Live Music. As many of you know I have a long history of bring bands to that room that dates back to 1996. As Axiom Promotion I worked both as a independent promoter and talent buyer when it was Safari Nite Club and then Hairy Mary's. It has been a joy to see Erik and Anne bring live music back to the venue at 2307 University Ave here in Des Moines and I'm greatly looking forward to working with both of them and their staff.
