If You Happen To Find Yourself In The Alleged Live Music Capital Of The World This Mid-March (2018 Edition)

Once upon a time, cantstopthebleeding.com was one of the nation’s top sports blogeterria (blogoterrarium? blogtoxcity?) destinations, appealing to the friendless and socially challenged and/or persons hungry for LOTS & LOTS RECRIMINATIONS. As the nu media wars wore down, the site retreated into near dormancy, maintained by an automated system devised by the same brilliant minds behind Do512 the Atari Jaguar

I’m not sure how familiar you are with the phenomena of “artifical intelligence”, but about 10 years ago the cyborg in question began organizing an annual free show in the middle of March at a respected Red River venue. From day one the event was sponsor free and impervious to the crony-heavy network of booking agents, garbage labels and the like. In short, it made no sense whatsoever but since the bill is always super hot and there’s no cover, hardly anyone complains.

So what happens when one of the region’s most self-important “underground” labels joins forces with a near-dormant sports blog to present an evening of free music in the middle of a trade-fair clusterfuck? If you’ve been paying attention for the last decade, you already know the answer to that question : sick lineup + lower percentage of jagbaggery than you’ll encounter in the rest of the neighborhood (until Sunday, anyway). Action starts early, no smurf by smurfette credentials required (free counseling for anyone with a Burgermania wristband, however).
