What is a Micro-Show?
The first ever Micro-Show was held in Richmond, VA on June 17th, 1995
Sam McPheeters, as he likes to put it, is the Thomas Edison of those little bastards.
The rules are simple:
Five (5) bands play for one (1) minute each, if any band runs one (1) second over sixty (60) the crowd is responsible for storming the stage and ending the set.
On September 19th 2009 (14 years, 3 months, 2 daysÂ or 7,499,520 minutes after the first one), Breathmint & Z Radio began co-curating their own series of Micro-Shows.
