|Tuesday, February 2, 2016:
What started out as a little side project in 2002 became SoCalRocks.com in early 2003. Then, in 2011, I expanded it to handle national events and renamed the site Live Music HQ. It was never created with the idea of getting rich -- only to help the live music community. Yet, at the same time, I didn't expect to run it this long without ever seeing some small profit to cover my time and own expenses to keep it running.
Since I don't really have the spare time or spare cash anymore to keep it going, and since I am questioning how much people even value the site anymore, I am considering shutting it down.
So, what I'd like from you is this... if you or your band would be severely impacted somehow if Live Music HQ went away, please send me an e-mail at info@LiveMusicHQ.com and tell me so. Based on the feedback that I receive, I'll make a decision very soon on which direction to take the site.
