It will be great to have the Q's back in town
How Can I Say I Miss You?
Here's a link to our online listings: http://cltampa.com/tampa/EventSearch?event…
Here's a link to our upcoming concerts page, in which we select the most worthy shows to be featured each week (and this runs in print, have you seen the paper?): http://cltampa.com/tampa/Category?oid=2010…
Also, if you read the paper, you will notice that EVERYTHING in the music section is an advance for something that is upcoming; online content includes follow-ups/reviews/after-the-facts as well. In other words, online reviews and the like are supplementary content to what we have in the paper.
WOW! That Sub South link is great. I had no idea so much awesome stuff was happening around here. Maybe Tampa isn't so bad after all.
You do realize that they post upcoming concerts and events regularly on the music section right? In fact, I even wrote about this as an upcoming event the week prior. Also it doesn't take much of an effort to look up local places calendars.
Why in the world do you write concert reviews? Why not get ahead of it and let us know who IS GOING TO come to town instead of reviewing stuff that already happened and we can't attend even if we want to.
"Ant broke up the band in 1982" sure is a nicer way to say "Malcolm McLaren stole the Ants out from under Adam to form Bow Wow Wow."
Friday is the 9th.
Explore this site, good point of reference since it includes many of the cities being discussed.
I was at one of the two Fixx shows at the Bayfront Theater back in '84, wondering if anyone has the DVD that was made of that concert available?? I have searched the web for the last couple years and found hardly even a mention of it anywhere? It was one of my very first concerts and I loved it!! you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org thanks and hope to hear from someone someday!!
Gotta love the historic Ricky Wilcox and The Moonsnakes...
You should check out Sweet Oblique
These guys were so amazing! Got to see them at the aforementioned show and they truly, truly impressed. Can't wait to see them again when they return.
The featured Sarasota musicians of Teach Me Equals are a man on cello and a woman with rather fantastic vocals on guitar and violin. Their music is classically-influenced, though taken in art rock directions. Yes, they incorporate technology via looping, however, it is the 21st century, no one musician is limited to just a 'real' instrument, and many choose to expand their musical vocabulary with these machines. The music down there overall is going in really exciting places, I must say, I am intrigued and can't wait to hear more...
Also, I am willing to beef that list up ... so tell me what bands I should be adding? That question was a sincere one, people.
Obviously there are other bands that weren't included; there are literally thousands of bands playing in the Bay area. Is there anything in here saying that these are the *only damn bands doing it DIY? Nope.
FYI this scene and the six other scenes featured in this week's paper were overviews paired with a profile of a person in the scene who is doing something exciting, relevant, significant to the scene in question. They were meant as a quick glimpse, since we only had a sum total of 900-1,000 words for both the overview & profile. That's not much and obviously there were people, places, bands, performers, events et. al not covered - but again, all these stories were meant as an introduction; a way to expose readers and the greater public to scenes that are happening right here, right now, in and around Tampa Bay, that they probably don't know about. None of these pieces were meant to offer a comprehensive history of a scene, or to name every single important component in that scene. All of these stories were ultimately meant to start some dialogue about these scenes, and in that, they've succeeded.
So ... if you have some meaningful dialogue or enlightenment to offer, do it. Otherwise, you are just trolling.
Here's a link to the profile, which ran with the overview in the paper:
