One of the larger goals of NSF is to promote locals. We have a deep well of talent here in Hawaii. We strive to showcase the best we got while inviting other like-minded DIY talent from the mainland to come down, join the fun, and bear witness to the awesome.
And word through the grapevine is that all your hard work is paying off, HNL!

In the spirit of art and cheapness we handmade and cut/paste each cd case -without the help of a command key. Each is unique and contains pure awesomeness. They remind me a lot of you general money having public. The time for pandering is upon us, for we need the funds and you need this show!
