Showpaper is an all ages newsprint listing with beautiful poster-size artwork. Please donate to the next issue so we can keep printing!
Showpaper is a single broad sheet, 10,000-print, ad-free publication which comes out every two weeks and features, on one side, more than 300 all-ages shows and fifty venues in which many of those shows will take place, and, on the other side, a full-size, full-color poster by an artist. To appear in our publication, a show needs only to be all ages and cost less than twenty-five dollars to enter. This allows us to compile a unique listing of shows, which is: comprehensive; free of advertising; without a hierarchy of artists or venues; and, sometimes, the only place a show will be listed.
Showpaper has never received any institutional or corporate funding, but it's a full-time job for many of us who barely have part-time ones to be able to organize the required weekly fund-raisers to help us pay for printing every two weeks. We would not have made it this far without the support of countless amazing bands and generous audiences and volunteers, but after just over 2 years we feel we can only rely for so long on those aspects of our paper before we exhaust them.
If you're willing to pledge a small donation to Showpaper to help us print this upcoming issue, it's as simple as pointing and clicking, and letting us know that you'd like the Tri-State's most comprehensive listing of all ages and underground shows to stay independent and in the hands of the community it supports.
Thanks for all the work you've done, and all we hope you do in the future. The musical landscape wouldn't be the same without you.
