Anyone good with Php Scripts?

I'm putting together a site documenting live recordings from U2. If you take a look at http://www.nirvanaguide.com/ They have year by year guides of recordings. I'd like to do something like that. Any ideas? Wanna point me in the right direction? Wanna help?

From a quick look over there, it looks like all the content is static, so there is no need to use php, it can all be done in basic HTML.

But if I want to update shows easily, would it be better to have script, or just update via HTML?

I would think it would be easier to just use HTML, since even if you have to add content once a week, it just as quick in HTML as entering it into the database. Once you have your format set, you could just copy a previous block, and paste in your new info. If you are going to be going back and editing previous entries on a regular basis (as you find out new data on a show for example), then it might be worth it to script. As far as learning, there are tutorials to get started with php/database at several sites I use:

http://www.phpbuilder.com
