A Virtual Stage


Has anyone been on Myspace lately? Yeah, me neither. In fact, the moment I decided it was now completely devoid of any value was when they killed the one feature I actually liked: You could filter a band search based on locality. Between that and the fact that I’m convinced the literacy rate of active Myspacers is worse than a third world country, I was incensed to beat a hastry retreat to the pre-fab, formatted and safe confines of Facebook for my “Look how awesome I am today” self serviance.

Thankfully, other services have filled the void that Myspace left, and Reverbnation.com is arguably the most popular. It’s a FaceSpace just for bands, and provides tools Facebook and Myspace doesn’t (although it does have a seamless integration with both), such as easy access for bands to set up iTunes accounts and sell their wares. If you’re in a band, it’s worth exploring, and if you’re just interested in what you can hear in your own neck of the woods, here’s a quick sampling:
