You're 17 and you have been to all these shows!?! Thats pretty impressive, and you are right Hershey Stadium does suck.

Montage in Scranton is a good venue as is the Giant center in Hershey. The one in Camden blows as well but I can't remember the name right now.

You need setlists for each show.

Good stuff. The only thing I can suggest, is a quick link to the concerts. Instead of scrolling down to get to each one, it would be nice to see who you have, right off the bat. That will help once you write more reviews.

Very nice, though.

Thanks for all the advice. And the links to the concerts at the index.. probably a great idea.

I'll update it when I see John Fogerty and John Cougar Mellencamp at PNC this Saturday.

Man, submitting to an actual mag? I would love that, but I wouldn't know where to begin.

Oh, also, I forgot to ask, is there anything you guys think I should add? Maybe album reviews? Links to current tours/band websites... etc etc.

Thanks

One part I think is really lacking is the pictures section, but I gotta get myself a better digital camera before I can start snappin some good ones at shows.

Cool site.

My advice would be to find pictures that are more current. For instance, you obviously didn't see Dylan or Paul McCartney when they were in their twenties. Why use such old pics?

As you said, it will be better when you can snap some actual pics from the concert.

great website

one little bit of critique though

even though you have posted pics, I'd recommend that you make the font size of the act/band/singer a tad larger

example:

Band
date
venue

Allman Brothers Band
8/23/05
PNC Bank Art Center, Holmdel, New Jersey
***SPECIAL OPENING ACT - moe.***
