  • 7-10: Today I finished a long term project to clean up a lot of metadata for flyers. Tags have been edited and errors removed.
  • 5-14: All 1980 flyers in the queue have been uploaded. As is tradition, we will be taking most of May off and return on June 1st with 1990, 2000, and 2010 for the rest of the year.

  • 5-7: The combination of finals week, end of year responsibilities, and moving will slow things down here for the next week or so. Thank you for your patience.
  • 2-6: All 1978 flyers are now posted.
  • 1-28: Here is a fantastic blog post about HSF.

2017

  • 12-23: Due to Patreon’s recent idiocy, we lost some patrons. Please consider becoming a patron of HSF. Even $1 a month is helpful.
  • 12-22: All 1997 and 2017 flyers are now in the archive. Next year our focus will be on 1978, 1988, 1998, 2008, and 2018.
  • 12-2: All 1987 flyers are now in the archive. Next up will be 2017 and then 1997 to finish up the year.
  • 10-29: We are down to 120 flyers left in the 1987 queue.
  • 7-31: All 1977 flyers have been uploaded to the archive. Up next will be 1987. There are 351 flyers in the queue, so we will be there for awhile.
  • 7-21: All “Unknown Location/Year” flyers have been uploaded to the archive. I will be taking at least the next few weeks off to work on some other projects before continuing to upload more flyers.
  • 3-15: Current project is to add all flyers that do not have a known location or year to the archive. I organize the queue by year, so it is easier for me to put these up now and hope someone can help with more information. Work on this is ongoing.
  • 3-13: Adding back the final batch of flyers sometime this week! New updates will begin again sometime in the next few weeks.

2015

  • 12-7: As always, we will be taking most of December off while I deal with the end of my teaching semester and other obligations. Regular flyer posting will resume in the new year. Work will also continue behind the scenes on adding back flyers.

2014

  • 5-1: We will be going on our annual spring hiatus because of the end of the semester. Regular posting will resume on May 19th.

2013

  • 5-1:We will be having our annual spring hiatus while I focus on the end of my teaching semester and then take some time off. Normal posting will resume on May 15th.
  • 1-19: My hosting provider said they had an “emergency” that caused some downtime the past few days. Posting will return to normal in a minute.

2012

  • 12-10: As the end of the fall semester draws near, we will take our annual holiday hiatus until the new year. We will return, hopefully, with an updated theme and some other fixes. I will continue assimilating HardcorePunkMisc into this website and improve what we do here. See you in 2013, where we will draw near our fifth (!) anniversary.
  • 10-29: Things will be slower here until the end of the year. My teaching schedule and general responsibilities on campus keep me really occupied right now. Flyers will only be posted on select days of the week until the end of 2012. In January, things should go back to normal. Thanks for your patience.
  • 6-28: As we head towards the fifth (!) anniversary of this website, I need to announce that, as of July 1st, we will be merging Hardcore Punk Misc with this website. To make a long story short, it will be a lot easier for me to maintain one solid archive. Content from there will be moved over here as the summer progresses.
  • 5-7: We will be having our annual spring hiatus while I focus on the end of my teaching semester and then take some time off. Normal posting will resume on May 21st.

2011

  • 12-10: It is time for our annual holiday hiatus. I will be busy grading papers, exams, and dealing with other end of semester issues. Normal flyer posting will resume on January 1st. Starting submitting your 2012 flyers!
  • 9-10: We now have a tumblr blog for this website. How When Where is a tumblr for flyers that I have questions about. Normally, this will involve year, city, or questions about a band. Flyers whose issues are “solved” will get bumped to the top of the queue.
  • 4-28: Starting today, we are going to go on our annual spring vacation while I bunker down for the end of the semester. Normal flyer posting will return on Monday May 16th.
  • 4-26: I’ve been sick for the past week, so updates have been slow. We should be back to normal later today. We will take our normal “vacation” in the middle of May as well.

2010

  • 12-14: I am in the middle of finals week right now, so I think it is time for our annual winter holiday. Normal flyer posting will return at the beginning of January.
  • 8-25: We are going to take a quick hiatus so I can prep for my new teaching semester and take some time off. We will be back right after Labor Day.
  • 7-3: Been kind of on vacation (ugh, I am NOT calling it a “staycation”) the last week or two. Flyers will return to normal today or tomorrow. Yesterday was this website’s third anniversary.
  • 4-29: Hardcore Show Flyers is going to go on hiatus for a few weeks. I am dealing with the final week of my teaching semester right now, which is keeping me pretty busy. After that, I am going to take a few weeks off to work on some other projects. We will return to regular posts on May 17th. At that time, there may be a few changes to this website as well. Stay tuned.

2009

  • 12-6: We are going to take the rest of December off due to the end of my teaching semester. On January 1st regular posting will resume with, hopefully, a brand new design on the domain.
  • 7-13: You can now become a “fan” of this Web Site on Facebook. I will pipe content through there and also try to do some advertising for upcoming hardcore shows. This Web Site should be about modern hardcore as much as it is about old school hardcore at all times.
  • 5-17: Regular flyer updates will begin again later today. I do apologize for taking a few weeks off, but I was finishing up graduate school and things just got really hectic for a bit.

2008

  • 11-29: As you have noticed I have been absent from this site for a little while. This is because I am finishing graduate school in a few weeks and things have gotten pretty hectic in my life. Hopefully at this time next week things will have settled down enough that I can return to normally scheduled programming. Until then, hang tight.
  • 11-5: As a spinoff to this site I have started Hardcore Punk Misc. Instead of archiving show flyers I am archiving record ads and other miscellaneous items. There hasn’t been a lot of traffic yet, but I am hoping that will change soon.
  • 10-26: We got a nice link this week on Brooklyn Vegan.
  • 5-23:There was three days earlier this week without flyers. Sorry about that! I had some issues on my end that have been resolved. In fact, this site will be undergoing a redesign over the holiday weekend. Expect a new theme, new sidebars, and a big announcement about another site I will be working on, which will be a spinoff of this one.
  • 1-1: This site has now been open for six months. I thought I would offer some statistics, a little bit of news, and a call for contributions: So far we have 377 flyers on the site. At the half year mark, we are averaging about 50 separate visits and about 163 views during those visits per day. Which means when people come to the site, they stay and click around within the hundreds of tags on the site. The two flyers a day schedule will continue in 2008. A number of people have been enthusiastically asking if they can submit older flyers. For now, I would ask that you don’t. I still have about a thousand flyers to go through. I have enough older flyers to fill the site on our regular schedule for at least the next few years. More practically, I just don’t want to have to deal with sorting doubles and triples of flyers I already have…which is something I am already dealing with. I do, however, call for people to submit flyers for shows in 2008. I will be happy to add them almost immediately after I receive them. This will serve two purposes: the creation of an archive documenting the current hardcore scene and some further promotion for the show. So please send in new flyers! At one point or another in the future I may also start a podcast for the site. This is an idea still very much in its infancy. I think I might hold off until the summer when I will have a little more time to work on this. I will have an announcement about another unrelated podcasting project very soon.

2007

  • 8-1: I am going to take this week off from posting flyers.  I am swamped right now with graduate school work and thesis research.  I will return on Monday.
