..all shows listed were realized at Marburg Hotel [260 Ludlow] unless noted otherwise.
..Open Mind Night was a free range open mic night, unique to Marburg Hotel, apt. 1w. .. "the purpose of the event is sincere, and that is to incite a congregation of creative people [you all] to share in each others creative forthgivings, for the sake of inspiriation, motivation, and sanitation [spiritual]. This is a home-style open mic night, and we would love for you to participate." -MC.
..basement shows went down in the basement of the Marburg, apartment shows in apartment 1W. There were a few bedroom bashes which happened in apartment 2w, and a handful of shows which definitely happened some time at the Marburg, but are not listed here.
..SHADOWRAPTR played the final Marburg Show, in apartment 4W. It was a hoot.
..deepest gratitude to anyone who ever came to any show for any reason.
