If you’ve been to a local show over the past years, there’s a very solid chance you’ve noticed a man standing near the front of the stage, taking pictures with an old camera under a yellow Panama hat.

In fact, if Richard Brown isn’t at a Dayton show, the organizers might start to get worried. The Dayton native estimates that he’s been to over 2,000 local music shows since he started going regularly five years ago, and a couple of years ago, even squeezed in over 500 during a one-year period.

I got a call from my friend, Fostercore, asking what I was doing on a Thursday night. Thursday?

There’s usually nothing great on Thursdays aside from the 14 open-mics around town. “I scored some tickets, but have no license. You have a license, but no tickets. Wanna have an adventure?”  Well, hell yea; who doesn’t? I did a quick check of music events on Music Connection Dayton to see what else was happening and made a mental note of some highlights. I threw on my nearly-clean Slayer T-shirt, grabbed my leather, and I was out the door.
