A change of 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, we need the band's name; lineup and instruments; the year the band formed; style of music; who you sound a little like; influences; favorite local venue; any CDs that have been released, and your Web site. E-mail the information along with a high-res jpeg that includes band member IDs to Rod Lockwood at rlockwood@

If you're a club or a bar, follow the format you see for the venue at right. Once again, you can send information to Rod Lockwood at rlockwood@, and if you have any questions, call him at 419-724-6159.

Except where indicated, all area codes are 419.
