East Meets Left
A local showlist/music blog, focusing on cities on the east coast of the US (for now). Originally just a project for me to learn Django, my friends are actually writing some pretty great stuff, and exposing me to some excellent music. We could use some more writers, if anyone is interested, and are considering expanding beyond the east coast.

Please let me know what you think of the site design/interface!

I like the interface in general, although I didn't realize until I was sort of fumbling to find where I could sort by city that apparently I've learned to look for sorting/navigation information on the left side of a 3-column layout, and "extras" on the right. So personally I had a little bit of difficulty with the city sort function initially.

I was expecting show reviews rather than album reviews under the "reviews" header - it looks like you're planning to get more show reviews up - had you thought about having show and album reviews under separate headings? Having an archive of show reviews from various cities would be great - I feel like album reviews are generally easy enough to google, but show reviews are more challenging. And I'd be more likely to go see a band in DC if I read a great review of their show in Boston.

I like the underlying idea here, and I'm interested to see what develops as you get more content up.
