Thoughts on shows

For the punk community 2020 has sucked as shows haven’t been that viable. We all think about this magical return to “normal” which is a strange thought for a culture that thrives on being abnormal. I think the way forward is hybrid where all live shows are streamed. Because you could have a group of punks in like Kansas or wherever have a house party for a show in any part of the world. The bands and venue staff could then have work no matter the conditions and the idea of punk which has mostly spread through touring could potentially spread further than it ever has. We’ve proven you can sell tickets for streaming events and we can continue that. Charge maybe a lower price than you would for showing up in person. I’m no expert, but clearly we gotta evolve in a changing world.
