This is wonderful!  The pictures have filled voids for the shows that we missed.

I wasn't there, but I believe Skrillex played 1st Bank on the 31st of October, not the 3rd.

You lose all credibility by including skrillex. Also where are the small shows? Cut copy @ Ogden, crocodiles @ LL would be my 1 and 2.
