Really missing TOP live music listings. Always would pull up the PDF online and see what bands were coming to town. Are there any other sites that give a comprehensive list of all the live music in town?
Columbus Alive only has featured ones and is tough to navigate. CU only lists some of the bands in the mega weekend. Looks like Donewaiting is closing up shop also.
"This makes a very strong case for the return of public access television to Columbus: the people need alternative mass media outlets."

Youtube is NOT a substitute for Public Access TELEVISION. Internet will over run TV at some point, but we ain't there yet. The city takes in MILLIONS of $$$ from franchise fees from the cable companies who charge US for that, then don't give us the voice, the place on the television where we can be heard about whatever anyone wants to talk about. And it was guaranteed a channel - now just a bulletin board that lists events only.
Getting your Youtube channel seen and heard in your local area is about as likely as getting a single grain of sand seen out of the desert.Posted 6 months ago #
