Obscurrus Diem Productions was founded by Damien Allen in 1986 in the Metro Detroit area. He decided to make it possible for young bands to have a place to play outside of bars, he also noticed that a lot of the kids were too young to get into places so he made a decision to do all age shows. Damien moved to the Traverse City, Michigan area in 2000 and stopped doing shows for a little bit, because he has been an active musician for over 30 years and was playing out all the time. He met Mickey back in 2008 and in 2009 they decided it was time to start doing shows again. So Mickey quickly learned how to book bands and help run a production company. which leads us to where we are today.
