For the longest time, as a music community, we have all agreed on the need for a live music venue directory. There is one through a magazine, some venues have walls with other venues on it, another venue owner was putting together something for the mentors, there is the destination guide through Second Life.
The largest problem is that everyone wants something different. Some want genres, others want tips versus paid, etc.
If many of you have gone on and taken a look at the SecondRaters website; there is a website being built solely for live music venues. Without the rating system. Each Venue will have its own page, description, genre, logo, capacity, dress code, date established, owner, contact person, slurl, and even fundraisers they support.
There are still one or two technical issues that are being worked out and the site will be ready to publish. Just like the SecondRaters site, there will be a page that offers the opportunity to state who is missing in there.
There will also eventually be a page that lists management organizations for performers seeking representation.
Many venues have already submitted their information to be included. I have copied the nc for the information that is needed to be included. Please copy the information into a notecard and rename it with the venue name, then submit it to me inworld....still Braveheart
The original notecard that went out:
After so much discussion in the past about a directory for venues, it is finally being put together.
A website is being created, similar to SecondRaters, but without a rating system.
Each Venue will have it’s own page. All of the information will be included, the exception being tips or paying which will only be represented by a T or P or B at the bottom of a page. This will assist managers as they seek out venues for the performers they represent. You will each be given the link to pass along as well as a direct link to your venue page.
If things change, i.e. you are haunted for the Halloween season, we will try to keep your page updated with this info.
If your venue closes, please let us know so that we can keep this directory as updated as possible.
Please keep in mind that this will not be the location to post events at your venue, we all have enough places to do that. If your venue maintains kiosks for fundraisers that are transparent and accountable....i.e. RFL, Toys For Tots, etc., we will be happy to include that information on your page.
Please fill out the attached nc and rename it with your venue name and return it to me. The site is being put together as we speak so it will be ready to go as soon as possible. Your venue will be entered as soon as we receive it.
This is the attached notecard.
