Two pieces of news here.
While promoting shows is the largest part of what we're trying to do, we're also currently looking at expanding our coverage to add more interviews, show reviews, and album reviews. With the end of summer looming and real life commitments back and breathing down our necks, it's getting harder and harder to find the extra time to write articles. Lots of great show and interview opportunities are just passing us by due to work and life and just being understaffed in general. I mean, how much can two guys really get done in one day?
What this boils down to is we're looking for another writer. So if you're interested in writing for us, please shoot us an email. You've got to be willing to go to a lot of shows and do interviews with bands. You've got to also be willing to write a whole heck of a lot for not much reward (at least not physical!). Sense of humor required. There are some very great fringe benefiets like getting into shows for free on a press pass, and getting to interview some really awesome bands. We're preferrably looking for someone from the New Haven area who's willing to go to a lot of shows and write about them.
Item the second:
I just booted up a Facebook group, and I'd really appreciate it if you join and pass this around to your friends. I'm not really sure what the purpose of Facebook groups are quite yet, but it might be yet another way to reach people and get more people interested in quality local music. Hopefully as this website grows, so do the number of readers and the CT music community in general.
So please keep sending us emails, sarcastic comments, ideas, money, show dates, music and any feedback in general.
