New and improved BW Web site needs your help
Here at BW HQ, we love our new and improved Web site. One small complaint, however, has come from the desk of BW Calendar Guru, Elaine Lacaillade in regard to calendar submissions--especially those for live music. But, dear musicians and venues, as Robin Williams told bright but troubled Matt Damon, "It's not your fault."
When you visit boiseweekly.com and click on calendar, you'll find a link to submit an event near the top. Clicking that link directs you to an easy-to-fill-out form. The issue at hand, however, is that the form does not contain a box specifically for a band or event name. All of the other pertinent information--place, date, time, price, etc.--is requested by us and (usually) delivered by you, except that one vital piece. That's where the Comments/Description box at the bottom of the form comes in handy. If you are a member of a band submitting a show or a venue doing the same, put the band's name at the top of that great, big box.
