I readily admit our website isn't perfect, which is why we're always working on improving the functionality and design, moving things around and trying new things ahead of a forthcoming full redesign. But still, the search can be kind of wonky, some of the pages get a little ragged at the bottom, and there's always a list of things I want to find time to work on. Still, while I think TucsonWeekly.com largely does what its supposed to, as the web producer, I'm always willing to hear out suggestions of what we can do better.
However, a quick note to "Dave," who left me a message on my voicemail yesterday: calling me and telling me how you can't find a list of concerts on our "piece of shit" website and suggesting we hire a high-schooler so that we have "someone who knows what they're doing" isn't terribly helpful at all. I appreciate that you think that we're Tucson's community newspaper and I guess I'm sorry that we disappoint you, but hey, if you can't find where we keep the concert listings on our website, here's a step-by-step guide:
1. Go to TucsonWeekly.com, but I imagine you figured that part out.
2. Click on the "MUSIC" tab on our toolbar...I used MS Paint to illustrate where to go:
3. Under the "MUSIC" tab, click "Live Music Calendar (New)" It says new, because it is.
4. Then, shazam! There's our music calendar, with shows across town and the ability to listen to music by the groups performing. Sorry to break it to you, but Hoobastank canceled tonight's show, but that frees you up to see the B-Side Players and the Jons at the Rialto, so it all works out.
How easy is that? Almost easier than picking up the phone and dialing a number to leave a rude, anonymous voicemail! Hope that helps, Dave! I would have called back to walk you through the process personally, but you didn't leave a number for some reason. Anyhow, thanks for visiting TucsonWeekly.com!
