First they came

First they came for Muslims and I did not speak out because I was not a Muslim. Then they came for the undocumented immigrants and I did not speak out because I was not an undocumented immigrant. Then they came for the LGBTQ community and I did not speak out because I wasn’t part of it. Then they came for the climate scientists and I did not speak out because I was not a climate scientist. Then they came for the press and media and I did not speak out because I was not part of the press or media. Then they came for the government employees and I did not speak out because I was not a government employee. Then they came for women’s rights and I did not speak out because I was not a woman. Then they came for me and there was no one left to stand up for me.

Paraphrased from Martin Niemöller’s poem.

Tour Planning – Music Venues, AAA Radio, Alternative Weekly and Festivals

I decided to publicly share the map I have been working on. I hope that this helps AAA artists with their booking, publicity, and tour planning.
Enjoy!
