+Add a show | Edit this bio
Small-town producer Josh Gard has had a long history in music, but lately he has been rapidly rising up the ranks of all things bass. Just a few short years ago he donned the name of Figure and began making electro house, and he has since become a regular name in the realms of dubstep and drumstep. Scoring positions in Beatport’s top ten charts may have gotten him recognition, but a fantastic amount of praise has been raining down on him lately Read more on …read full bio

    House Shows vs. The Almighty Dollar : Where Do You Stand?

    There's been a mighty discussion on the Show-Guide recently regarding house shows and the almighty dollar-dollar-bill-ya'll.. It's been interesting watching this hot topic unfurl.We haven't chimed in too much but rather let this one unfold on it's own and it's still going four days after the first post.. We've gone ahead and pulled out all the Shoutbox commentary and posted it in order in hopes to carry on this topic and to bring in the RSS readers into the conversation.For your annoyance or reading pleasure (it will vary for you post-by-post): 4/24/2009 12:34:48 PMjuvenile: fuck house shows that charge money;we are the brokest city foolz 4/24/2009 12:38:24 PMpc-pdx: Everybody else is broke too, like touring bands that are traveling around the country spending gas money and eating fooods.. You should never be turned away for lack of funds - but please remember that we need to support those touring bands so scrounge all you can! 4/24/2009 1:52:00 PMfuck that: fuck houses that dont give all the money to bands. unless a window gets broke. or its a benefit. your punk dollars go to punk bands to get to the next punk show. ask your mom for a bigger allowance, or start drinking cheaper beer.;fucking lackasses. 4/24/2009 3:04:00 PMNathan Backous: People that do house shows don't charge money because its fun or to make profit, they do it so they can pass the money on to the touring bands that have to fill their tanks with gas (gas stations don't donate it). If you like seeing bands, be prepared to trade some cash for it.

    Best Band PDX 2009 Poll - we fixed our mistake

    As i'm sure everybody knows, We're hosting the Best Band PDX 2009 poll on the Show-Guide.. Our friend MIKE informed us that when you hit the [Enter] key on the keyboard after typing in a band - the #1 band gets a vote rather than the band that was manually typed in... That means that The Closet Monsters' vote count is unnaturally high and they didn't really get as many votes as are now counted.. We've thought about the best way to handle this and consulted some good people to help figure this one out.. What we've decided to do is to NOT start the survey over but rather delete the bad count for The Closet Monsters.

    House Show Rules #2: Bringing Common Sense

    I had intended to post this as a comment following the "House Show Rules #1: No Jerks!" blogpost, but then it sorta became an essay.. Boom Boom Kid @ the Sea Shanty, 2007.. As someone who's thrown a few hundred shows in houses over the last decade and a half, I gotta say that house-show hosts must be aware of the risks of turning their home into a public space, such as cops, assholes, theft, electrical fire, damage to walls and floors, giant messes to clean up, and even violence.. The solution is not so simple as complaining about jerks on a corner of the internet (such as here!) which will go unchecked by likely every such jerk who needs to check their attitude.The solution surely begins with considering what risks are associated with each show before you even confirm it.

    Where are the Band Bios? - Bios are having issues!

    Hey everybody! is where we currently get the band bios and it appears that their servers have been going through some funky patches lately.A few weeks back, we noticed that some band pages were taking something on order of a full minute or two for loading.. SUCKASS!We responding with "ohfuck, we gotta do something about that" so we created a new data access call that will abort after 2 seconds of no response.. If that happens, it means that you will see a band page with NO bio.. The bios might come back intermittently or they might be out for a while... it's all up to at the moment.We figured that it was more important for you guys to be able to surf through bands links, or whatevs you're doing, and find the shows quickly - rather than waiting for who knows how long for the bios to load.(for the nerds: i realize there should be a note on the page saying that a timeout happened and those bios are temp unavailable, but our shitty old code doesn't easily allow for that right now.

    East End Update

    --via dBMonkey + East End:East End wants to apologize for the silence since the fire.. We have been waiting for circumstances beyond our control to figure out the future.. We still do not have enough information to know when, or even if, we can open again.. We are still waiting on the city to tell the landlord what the Osborn building needs to make it safe for the public.
