January Spotlight: GoTonight.com

Read about this very cool live music website and my new involvement with it.

If you follow my blog, you've probably seen me talk about GoTonight.com before. But what is it?

Well, GoTonight.com (formerly known as WhereWillWeGoTonight.com) is website dedicated to presenting as much complete information about live music in the Tampa Bay area as possible. Their reach stretches as far north as Citrus Country and as far south as Sarasota County. This, of course, includes Pasco County.

Until recently, they had a very small handful of people administrating the site, updating their own live music lists, and going out to venues to make people aware of their services. As of 2013, though, they're looking to change that. They recently hired a crew of Community Music Activists (or CMAs for short) to help out with these tasks. Their CMAs are regional, being chosen based on where they live and what ground they can cover. Their choice for the West Pasco area?

Yup. Me.

I've been put in charge of updating the West Pasco venues on GoTonight's site. If you already frequent GoTonight, then you've probably noticed this to some extent. Many more West Pasco bars/clubs/venues are now far more up-to-date (I just recently put up Whiskey River's full January calendar). Now, some venues are already good at updating their own pages (Seaside Inn, Overtime, Sand Bar, and Sassy O'Shea's to name a few), which is actually the ultimate goal: encouraging the venues themselves to keep their pages up-to-date.

So take note, local bar/venue owners. In the coming weeks and months, you will probably get a visit from me letting you know about GoTonight, its ever-growing web traffic, its easy-to-use event input system, and optional premium advertising services. I'm actually quite happy to be part of the GoTonight team, as their mission is very similar to my own when I first started this blog.

So what does all this mean for the blog/live music list? Well, depending on how busy I get working for GoTonight--and depending on how I can manage my time between that, my music career, and my everyday life--it may or may not change. For now, though, it will remain as-is. I know several people who still rely on it for what's going on for the week. However, I do recommend that those people now also check out GoTonight, as the local live music info will pretty much be exactly the same as on this blog.

And on that note, here's your live music list for the week of January 11th-17th. If you have any additions or corrections that should be made, please do not hesitate to e-mail me. I now ask that if you e-mail me about live music information, please send it to tim@gotonight.com from now on, as I now want to keep my personal e-mail address for personal business only. As always, any help with making this live music list better is very much appreciated. Be sure, too, to visit GoTonight.com for even more live music info.

Have a great weekend, and stay safe out there!
