After a long hibernation period, a lot of apathy, and more than a few unhappy faces around the place, the Gig Guide is back up and running. Now, I know I’ve said this before, but I mean it this time. I’ve been moping for personal reasons, but a thread on Reddit, of all things (I’m no Redditor), gave me the final kick in the ass. It reminded me why I have the website — there’s nothing else out there like it.
For the moment it’s just a scrape of the City Weekend live music events, but over the May holiday I will go through and do a better job. What takes up most of my updating time is the artist pages, so I’m going to forego them for the moment until I have some more time. More information about artists (should there be any) will be in the notes section on gig pages. Which looks a bit ugly on the app, but whatever. At least there’s gig info, I say.
I’m working on a few things to make the site easier to update, including getting some sort of way to get people to add their own shows to the site, but those will come. Mostly, I need some more help. So if you’re an expat who can use Douban and has a really boring job or something, just drop me a line and I’ll put you to work. Compensation is erratic but can occasionally be arranged in the form of thanks, tickets, and beers, depending on availability.
