Trivia 1
No Previous Trivia | Next Trivia

New to Cringe  and the Live Shows calendar - trivia questions! Most of these were posed in recent Live Shows calendars (their associated date following in parenthesis). I don't try to ask extremely obscure questions, rather I stick to more significant connection and/or "historical" type questions - trivia doesn't have to be trivial. At this point no prizes are offered - other than the sense of pride in knowing the correct answers :-)

If ya can donate prizes (recordings, discounts, tickets, free/reduced admission, food, equipment, whatever) out of the goodness of yer heart or in support of any support Cringe, Live Shows and their readers give you (Politican - off Bussiness man - off), let me know. If ya have some local music related trivia, I could use that too. - Joel
