If I read my twitter stream right, the last vestige of the excellent old Venue mag, the listings website which kept the name alive on the net, is set for the chop in a couple of weeks.
I hope the estimable Tony Benjamin still gets to preview gigs in the Bristol Post (their Friday/weekend mag is worth perusing just for that) but I guess the absence of the still impressively comprehensive Venue music listings will mean it gets that bit harder to find out what’s going on at jazz venues around town.
So I’ll try and list a few more dates here from now on. The readership is modest, but then the gig audience if often modest too so it might make a small difference.
I’ll check the regular venues’ sites for details, but if there’s anything you want to make sure gets up here feel free to email me details, as some folks already do – jonturney (at) gmail.com. I’ll just post/paste what people say – any personal recommendations will be kept as separate posts.
Oh, and If anyone thinks this is worth doing, or sees things missing when I get round to doing this, feel free to say so in the comments.
