Hello world, or, at least, hello Shop.

I'll get to an introduction post in a bit. One of my other instances is closing in May, so I've come here as well as joining a new music-related one, because this instance came highly recommended.

We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
