About this archive.
For the most part this site evolved organically. This is my contribution, my appreciation, to our scene. It’s been growing since 2006. The site is averaging a 1000 views a month and importantly generating follow on clicks to the bands and venues.
Whether it’s links to this site or the bands, these shares do count. Like myself, many are running their own promo, getting word out of tours, releases, collaborations, funding all the above. So it does matter when we, friends or fans, give each other a little push along.
Buying a ticket, an album, a t-shirt and supporting fund-raiser campaigns early really make the wheels go round. The benefits are nearly always greater than the intitial investment.
If you want to support this archive once off or on a regular basis I have a PayPal – this means I can keep this available to everyone without going onto *Patreon or running ads on my site.
*Nothing against Patreon, I’d just prefer to keep all my work here open and accessible for fans of music and photography.
Jason is a contributing photographers to The Thin Air Magazine covering gigs & events at West Cork’s award winning venues De Barra’s Clonakilty, Connolly’s of Leap, Levis’ Corner Bar, Ballydehob. The Thin Air is currently the only music site in Ireland with regular cover outside the cities. And if you live and work outside the hotspots you know how important this is, when a band comes to town.
