Happy New Year! As we wrap up the second full year of ShowlistDC, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who’s been using this site. Thanks for telling me about shows, thanks for mentioning this site in interviews (Cigarette on DCMusicDownload) or on your blogs (DCRockLive), thanks for spreading the word about ShowlistDC to other music fans, and most importantly, thanks to all the local musicians who keep this area such a vibrant music scene. Thanks especially for everyone’s patience and understanding this fall when I had to suspend my daily Music Notes after my laptop was stolen.
I did a statistical wrap-up at the end of 2011, and now here are some statistics on what ShowlistDC did in 2012:
I’ve got a lot planned for 2013. Some things aren’t going to change– I’m still going to list and recommend a ton of shows, but I’m going to continue working on the detailed venue info page, and I’m hoping to bring back some sort of daily or regular blog here. I will certainly continue to work with local venues and bands here to give away tickets to shows and other things to the music fans who read this site.
If there are any ideas for things you’d like to see on ShowlistDC or on this blog, please let me know, either with a comment here or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
And, as always, feel free to look for me at shows– I went to 113 shows in 2012 and certainly plan to attend at least that many next year! Come up and say hi– and keep on supporting live music in 2013!
