Now, the bad news: Because I want to get the photos and video posted ASAP, I won’t be writing my typically detailed preview of this weekend’s parties and concerts around the 209.
But there’s one final bit of good news: My interactive calendar of future concerts and parties is finally done, as you can see above. It’s the neat little toy above that replaces my list of upcoming events, which was getting really long.
Events set to be held after this weekend are listed on the calendar by genre. Click on details link under the genre of your choice and you’ll get more details about an upcoming event.
Let me know what you think.
Below is my list of parties and concerts set to be held in the next week around the 209. If you want your event featured on this list, you can send me a Facebook invite, post it as a comment on www.myspace.com/ianhill or Tweet your info with @209Vibe.
