A collection of band flyers

"...it's probably extra easy to trace my life & interests through these galleries. They start out in Kansas (most of the early non-Lawrence/ KC ones were sent to me either by people ordering copies of my zine or by a few pals of mine who had run away to CA), and as I move around in life the bands & venues change accordingly: Kansas, Ohio, Washington DC, Kansas again, Arizona."

That's an amazing collection (the REM flyer from 1981 is a GEM). Takes me back to the days when the music really meant something, and it was all like, political and stuff

Wow. How random... I knew Jason Willis back in the day, when I lived in Tucson. Super cool guy. The Weird Lovemakers are still one of my favorite bands of all time...

We just had the Foolkiller (immortal venue of many KC shows back in the 80s) reunion on Saturday night. I didn't know Jason, but I had the name of the Micronotz scribbled on the cover of more than one Trapper Keeper.

Wow, I'm old.
