Shows I Go To only has one rule: Have fun.
We aim to inspire writers and photographers to become the best they can be. We’re looking for photographers with nightly availability who can take awesome pictures and cover shows with short-notice. We’re also looking for writers and photographers all over the United States to start teams in new markets (especially in NYC, Atlanta, Tampa, Miami, Nashville, Austin, Portland, and Chicago).
Right now we’re in need of writers to write:
- Preview pieces for upcoming shows and ticket giveaways.
- Fun and interesting News Articles and get them out fast.*
- Local band features, scene features, and think-pieces.
- Album Reviews with a personal touch.
- Live Music Reviews from a story-esque, diaristic, first person point of view.

Here’s a testimonial from some of our staff writers:
Writing for Shows I Go To is what has motivated me as a writer and has helped me receive a nomination for “Best Local Blogger” for “Best Of The Bay 2015.” Our love for music and the artists behind it inspire us to go out, take photos or write reviews, but ultimately connect our experiences to future fans of perhaps their one day favorite band. We’re helping the voices of the scene be heard just a little louder. – Amanda S.
And, here’s one from one of our Staff Photographers:
“SIGT is providing me exactly what I’ve wanted to do and I’m stoked on the fact that these guys are so caring.” – Carlo C.
“Shows I Go To got me business cards and got me laid. Two firsts for me!” – Martin C.
