On what is sure to be a night of camaraderie and face melting rock to be enjoyed by one and all, your friends Mayor For Life, Nonagon, and Heavy Bombers would like you to join them. Please join them, unless you hate fun. In fact, feel free to join them even if you hate fun because perhaps you will have your mind changed once and for all about fun. This show might have the power to do that.
Here you will find a nearly complete record of all of Nonagon's live performances. Many of the individual show reports have images, videos and commentary. If you want to browse through a more condensed version of this list, go to the quick overview page.
Holy cats! We are heading out to New York City to play with our friends The Austerity Program and Risk/Reward. We rarely make it out beyond the Midwest so please come to this show if you can.
Don Pedro Bar Lounge is at 90 Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11206. It's an early show and will be starting at 8pm sharp,
We were added as a last minute addition to this great Champaign show at Mike & Molly's:
That blurry, drunk guy at the bottom of the frame came up to me after I snapped this photo and close-talked to me with a barrage of questions about why I am taking this picture. I then explained, three times, that I am in the band that just sound checked at full volume two minutes he came out for his smoke.
The show was fun and all the bands were great. Thanks to Isaac for letting us piggy-back on this fantastic bill.
We're headed south to play at the Valley of the Vapors festival. It was a very nice event in a cool space (Low Key Arts) filled with art and tacos.
One of the highlights of the long drive down was a stop at Lambert's Throwed Rolls. Great southern food ladeled onto your plate and hot rolls throwed through the air!
Hot Springs is a swell little tourist destination. Here's John & Tony taking in the sights in front of the many old-timey bath houses that line the main strip.
Low Key Arts.
The only way the band could convice Robert to agree to a show this far away was with the promise of Waffle House.
A massive music festival in the Wintery North! We are taking over a sleepy inn on the lake for three nights of music. Not sure which night Nonagon will be playing, so come up for the entire thing!

The Motel Beds
Put simply, Motel Beds is a rock band from Dayton, Ohio and that means certain things to certain people... Yes, they release albums faster than most bands book shows. Yes, the songs are catchy, guitar-driven and often shorter than three minutes. And finally yes, one of them has played with Robert Pollard.
Today's Man is/has (Please choose one or more of the following): A. A dynamic instrumental trio with a sprinkle of awesomeness. B. Great lateral quickness but size is a question. C. Three cocksmen who don't play by the rules."
