Who the fuck knows what happens next, but as it appears that live events will be returning soon in some form in greater numbers, my livestreams like others are beginning to wind down. In addition, I’ve overhauled the events page in a big way, so see the link further down for that. Livestreams and waiting for new releases seem to be the order of the day, for now, still, so I continue to wrap up both, as well as the tentative announcements for new in-person events and gigs.

Obviously, things change at short notice right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.
/amodelofcontrol.com continues to maintain an events calendar, but it has now moved to /amodelofcontrol.com/events – and is now a dynamic, searchable database, and you can add individual events to your own calendars. I’m currently fixing a couple of minor backend issues, so new events may not be added for another couple of days, or be added sporadically.
If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above. It goes without saying that any gig or club still in the listing is subject to change at short notice, or may not happen at all.
/Tuesday Ten/458 will come next week, as well as the second of the recently completed interviews (this one with LONESAW) – the latter carried over from the last few weeks (it needs a fair bit of formatting correction after some issues with it, and I’ve not had the time so far).
Livestreams continue from me this coming week – Stormblast/155 marks the end of /Stormblast for now on Thursday.
