Week In Retrospect - Sunday 3. October

Posted by AP on 04/10/10

Another week of graceful non-profit volunteer work is thus behind us, and look at the amount of fresh content. We give without asking in return - the philanthropic webzine that we are. This is the ultimate rock n' roll charity box, and the 20 album reviews, 4 gig reviews, and countless news stories are our way of showing appreciation for the music that shapes our lives. Sounds cheesy, but rest assured we mean every word of it.

In less philosophical news, we are rapidly moving ahead with the new design, with some key improvements already in place and functional. We are trying to create a far more user-friendly and modern experience for visitors to our website and while the functional changes are less apparent than those related to design, we trust that in time you will grow to appreciate the clever ideas that Mr. Nick Bishop (NB) has incorporated into the new site. That is, when it actually comes out - and we hope this will happen before the turn of the decade.

Expect lots more content coming you way this week, (tentatively) including coverage of concerts by Marionette, The Dillinger Escape Plan, You Me At Six, Architects, My Vancouver and The Psyke Project, as well as a number of highly anticipated, big album reviews. Don't forget to keep recommending us to anyone who might have even the slightest interest in what we are doing, and, if you still haven't, like our Facebook page.
