The Backroads gig guide – now better than ever

February 26, 2010 Comments: 0
Backroads gig guide

Thanks to the immense cleverness of web guy Ralph, the Backroads gig guide is now even more user-friendly. As well as viewing the guide in date order or searching for a specific artist or venue, you can now see the entire guide sorted by date, artist or venue. So you should definitely never miss anything.
There are still a few tweaks to come, including some buttons to make it easier to jump from page to page. In the future, when the software catches up with our ideas, we also hope to be able to sort the venues by city or region.
The Backroads gig guide is updated almost daily, so come back regularly to look for new shows. This week, for instance, we have added all the tour dates for Chuck Prophet and the Mission Express, Jason and the Scorchers and Cara Luft, as well as another show for Gretchen Peters and further dates for Eve Selis. Major updates to the gig guides are announced on the Backroads Twitter page.
If you know of gigs or tours that should be here and aren't, e-mail the gig guide and we will endeavour to post them as quickly as possible.
