Welcome to the Scene

The Blade's redesigned listing of clubs, live music venues and assorted things-to-do will kick off each week with a mini-feature on a band or club. We'll include old favorites and newbies, the eclectic and the expected.

If you're interested in being considered 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 BOFFO 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 rlockwood @theblade.com.

If you're a club or 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 the information to Rod Lockwood at rlockwood@theblade.com and if you have any questions, call him at 419-724-6159.
