Hey Pete from Worcester MA here! What a wild year!

Sold out wall to wall and the energy was pumping! Definitely one of my favorites of the year.

Fri Sept 13 at Distant Castle – Mute Swan, Bad Larrys, Dream Job, Memory Lame
This was one of those Fridays where lots of people come to the show for no reason! Love it. Good gig!

Tues June 11 at Ralphs Outside – Strange Fate, Funeral Cone, Scare City

Tues Aug 6 at Ralph’s Outside – Spit Take, Dando Fever, Jake + Tops
Outdoor shows at Ralph’s were great this year! No Rain outs! Good $ for out of town bands! Hell yeah.
This was a fun show. Spit Take have become good friends of mine these past couple years. Jake + crew are always very helpful and have also become such cool friends of mine. Much love!

Some other cools things that happened this year: Touring w Bad Larrys was so great! Awesome tour-mates, great friends, great band! Check out their Album: Perfect Trim! Other things: Hung w my Nephew Jackson a bunch. Listened to Juliana Hatfield too much. Read her book “When I Grow Up”. Felt a lot of emotions! Did cool stuff!
2019 was a very trying year for me! It kinda sucked, but also was great! And that’s just life. I got to spend loads of time w beautiful people and saw loads of good music. I’m grateful for this life. Come hang in Worcester in 2020 : D
Thanks for reading!
-Pete
