10 Minutes - Pubs With Live Music

Hi. It's Joe.

I think Madison WI needs a better live music guide than what it currently has.

The Isthmus online has a cumbersome search engine that makes finding local live music a real pain. For all intents and purposes it is useless for bands and musicians to promote themselves.

The Onion's AV Club is very much a "CLUB." If you don't know someone there, you don't exist.

Both online directories publish local music shows faithfully. But there is no easy way to search for specific shows by genre or other meta data.

When it comes to recording live music, and live music downloads, music licensing and promotion services like BROADJAM.COM are useful. This is because they incorporate a lot of meta data into their site. If a band or musician is creative with meta data and tags, someone searching BROADJAM.COM can easily find what they are looking for.

There is a lot of live rocking going on the next week or so, culminating with GUPPY EFFECT at Up North Bar in Madison WI on Saturday 4/24 from 8 to 11 PM. That show is going to be awesome.
