What a tangled Web we weave


Part of my role here at Boise Weekly is to be the head webmaster. If you haven't checked out our new and improved Web site, I implore you to do so. Some key features have gone online in the past few weeks and I'd like to share them with you.

Our Boise Band Roster is up and running. You can view band bios, photos, links and listen to 15-second MP3 samples of their music. But that isn't what is so cool. Over time, as more articles, reviews and news gets posted to our Web site, those stories are cross-linked to bands and locations. So, if see a band you want to go check out in our listings, you can view past reviews and maybe listen to a sample of their music. Then you can see all their upcoming scheduled shows.

All that is great, but it's up to the bands to be a little proactive and send us their information. We make it easy; there's a link right there. Anyone can also submit an event. Also new are links to other great stories from alternative papers across the country. Scroll down on the right hand side and you'll see the latest articles. Happy reading.
