Highlight Of The Year

Ironically, while this was everyone's worst year, this was my BEST year! I started working for a fantastic engineering company (building freakin' LASERS!) while also beginning my own business as a guitar pedal/cable/music tech manufacturer! I have never been so excited about music now that I'm creating things to enhance live performances (when they kick off in full swing again!) Keep an eye out for Messycable Engineering!


Prediction For Next Year

My last predictions (for 2019 and '18) were freakin' wack and I'm genuinely worried that this year's prediction of mine won't be that solid: I say that the Gold Coast's scene picks up again. It's been real slack since Miami Shark Bar was closed down (and the break-up of fantastic bands like CAKES), but with artists like Citrus Daze, the Gold Coast is set up to become one hell of a freakin' incredible community again.
