Gnar means playing every show like your life hangs in the balance.

Gnar means listening in on new bands and new projects and telling your friends. And the bands. And potential friends and other bands.

Gnar means standing up front and slamming your heels when the cool kids are standing in the back and tapping their toes.

Gnar means understanding that you can’t expect to get anything out of a music scene you don’t put anything into. Gnar means making music with your friends, making flyers for their bands, taking pictures when they’re shredding, getting an appropriately placed hand under them when they’re crowdsurfing.

Gnar means making sure that everyone at the show feels represented by what they see on stage. When everyone feels included and wanted at your show, no matter who they are or where they come from, they've achieved peak Gnar.

Gnar means we're all in this together, and This Means Gnar.
