What Happened To "Shows By Year?"

It's still in the menu but all it is, is (homage to Bubba Clinton) a list of every show's date with the venue below and a link to "details". Wasn't it once a list of links to each indvidual year? As it is now you have to page through every show to find the year you want. So, if you're lookin' for 1972, first you have to find what page 72 starts on by using the process of elimination and once you find it see which page of shows from 72 has your date. Is that clear?

A simpler explanation: "Shows By Year" is the same thing as the "All Shows" only with 3 lines as opposed to 1line on "All Shows.".

1 day closer to springtime!!

and if you don't get any response here,

you might head over to the Your Own Storefront topic, which normally wouldn't be the place I'd suggest for this but in this case might have a high concentration of vendors.

shakedown vending

We have tix for 1 show for the Beacon at the moment.. I would not mind vending at a show I don't have tix for,, plenty of fun in the lot. I enjoy Mann at Phillie,,, Would like to do that.

well

for starters, are there any shows you have tickets for already? What tours are you planning to hit from an audience standpoint? This would help focus our thinking a bit.

well as of right now

I'd say it would depend wildly on the promoter and the venue involved, seriously. Others with recent experience are invited to weigh in, but there are some shows where vending is actively encouraged and there's a clear path on how to do it, and other shows where you'll get mercilessly harassed and busted if you try. Often on the same tour. Or such has been my observation over the years. So I'd say before you invest heavily in this plan, do a little research, because it is big fun and many miraculous, enlightening rewards can come along the way and some real bummers as well. Watch each card, etc.

I can't find any evidence of such an image, so it could be that whoever posted it thought better of it somewhere along the line. If you get a specific link, I'll follow up.

shrams, thanks, dealt with it, I THINK... you were one of many that got caught up in that little issue...
