Do you count BOTH alt/indie concert-going and hiking among your most beloved activities? Do you want to sit around an open campfire and geek out about your favorite indie/alt rock, folk, country, electronic album this month? Perhaps you have strong opinions about the content on Pitchfork, Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, Gorilla vs. Bear, KEXP, NPR, Bandcamp and your Spotify Discover Weekly playlist!?
If I know this crowd like I think I do, you might also love tech or film or books or art... And so, the mission of the group is to bring our niche of indie/alt music fans + outdoors addicts together to share passion, swap recommendations, get to the trees, and make new friends!
Dues (Pay What You Can Afford): This is a not-for-profit group and I don't require dues to join. However, it costs ~$180/year for me to host our group on Meetup so a donation goes a long way toward keeping our group alive. Recommended donation is $2–4 for every event you attend or $20 to cover a full year of unlimited events. Donations will be requested twice a year as a reminder to those who can contribute. Cash or Venmo most welcome!
No Shows: 2 no-shows will result in removal from the group. It is difficult to host a quality event for the group if we're waiting around for people who don't show up. Please show your new friends (that's us!) some courtesy and be sure to add events to your calendar so you don't forget your RSVP. And if it turns out you can't make it, you can comment on an event thread, un-RSVP or send me a private message any time before the event to ensure your not marked a no-show. Thanks for your understanding.
Join Our FB Group: Our community is passionate about getting together for even more concerts and other activities beyond what I host on Meetup. Once your membership is approved, please check your welcome email for a link to our bustling Facebook group so you can join in the extra fun and suggest your own events!
Could it be January? Is it time to reflect on the past year and make resolutions to go to more shows and hikes? Yes, yes of course. But FIRST in the immortal words of Walter Sobchak, "fuck it Dude, let's go bowling."
In keeping with our annual tradition, let's see a few local bands (with names like "Dad" and Nic Cage" how do you say no? :P) and then bowl! We'll also bring pizza and snacks! Hope to see you there and looking forward to a whole new year of good times and great music with ya'll!
