Profile Information

I co-owned a space in Fresno called The Bel-Tower (RIP) and currently reside at CAFE Infoshop. I sing in a band called Midwest Moms. You can usually find me doing all I can to skip school, barely working, at Food Not Bombs, or hanging out at a show.


I also book shows and make fliers. Email me at otherxcore@gmail.com if you require my services. I prefer to book queer/lady/radical bands in the vein of punk or darkwave, but I may be able to help you if you don't fall into any of these categories.

The FREE TABLING OPPORTUNITY in Fresno just got sweeter: ACxDC and RESIST AND EXIST!

Posted on September 11, 2011 at 4:11pm 0 Comments

The details are all the same as in the previous blog post, but I thought I'd share some cool news! Our headliners for the fest are ACxDC (straight edge power violence  legends) and RESIST AND EXIST, arguably one of the most recognizable names in radical punk history.


To sum it all up, if you can be in Fresno, CA on October 15, you can table FOR FREE and catch some super good bands. I hope to see some of you there.

We want you to table at FUCK YEAH, BEL-TOWER FEST in Fresno, CA! October 15!

The Bel-Tower is a DIY music and arts collective I co-own in Fresno, CA. We're holding a fest for our one year anniversary on October 15 (at our space, of course), and we would love to have some people table! If you have zines, music, crafts, literature, or anything else you'd like to sell and/or give out, we want you there! Tabling will be free, but we'd love it if you could kick us a couple bucks for the bands. One catch: you'll have to provide your own tables and chairs because ours are…

It's good to know you're visiting before your show at Burnt Ramen...which i would like to got to. If things are too crazy at the GIlman show there's plans to have Blatz do things the rest of the weekend. Keep your ears glued to a voice mail 510 Bad SMut come that weekend.

I hope you're doing well
