this week's update:
http://showlistdc.com/recent.php

this week's dilemma: I don't like promoting bands that are racist/NSBM/etc, and yet I try to be comprehensive about the area's concerts.  A new concert was announced this week featuring some well-known racist bands. I decided to list them-- BUT with a bold disclaimer and a link to find out more about their beliefs and the controversy around them.  Is that enough?  How do you think this should be handled?

to be honest, it would take me half the day to figure out what band you're even talking about.

Just list everything.  You don't need to make moral decisions on bands.  If you were going to go that root you would have to not include any RAP peformers as most of them have either sexist or racist lyrics.   If you aren't excluding anything you aren't promotoing bands. 

I think adding a disclaimer isn't neccessary and actually is promoting them and giving them the attention they want.

haven't in a while, wasn't really sure it was something that people cared that much about.  could try to bring it back if so?

don't let the #douchetrolls on this here board get you down...

I don't think anyone has ever complained about free ticket giveaways being posted.

Omitting a band due to their content is a bad idea. I'm with you on feeling torn on promoting this band but it's a slippery slope that has no good end. I mean, Odd Future have multiple songs glorifying the rape and murder of women but their local shows have been high-profile affairs. You could get into the lyrical content of Slayer as well.

And for the record, I've seen both of those bands live so I'm not judging either of them.

Sadly no - someone emailed me about setting up a richmond-area concert listing site but I don't know if they ever ended up doing it.

I guess pollstar/songkick are good places to start, and someone recommended the "Timbre" app to me for local concert listings but I'm not sure how comprehensive that one is.

I'd like to add other city resources to my links page, but other than Austin and NTX, i don't know of other sites like mine.

OneWayRichmond used to have a good one but around a year ago they started editorializing and basically dropped the show listing element of it for some reason.

Richmond'a a lot easier - there's basically only 7 venues you really need to keep up with then watch for festival shows.

you're welcome! :)  Thanks for emailing me about them-- seriously, bands/venues/fans letting me know about DIY shows makes it so much easier for me to keep things updated.

The TransModern Festival listings were for the 2013 shows...
