A new scene

The Blade's listing of clubs, live-music venues, and assorted things-to-do kicks off each week with a mini-feature on a band or a club.

If you're interested in being in this spot, here's what you need to do to make the Scene:

If you're a band, follow the same format you see for the band on this page. We're looking for the same information, e-mailed along with a high-res jpeg that includes band member IDs to Rod Lockwood at

If you're a club or a bar, here's what we're looking for: Name and address of the club and when it was established, name of the owner, what makes your place unique, origin of the club or bar's name, type of music or entertainment you feature, clientele (typical age range), upcoming special events, and Web site if you have one.

Once again, you can send information to Rod Lockwood at, and if you have any questions, call him at 419-724-6159.

Except where indicated, all area codes are 419.
