The 2nd issue of YOUR LMG is – sorry, WAS – available at one of the locations listed below. Yes, this issue is gone from almost all locations – and I have been truly humbled by the level of “this is just what we needed!!!” responses by the live-music-going section of our population.

What Is YourLMG?
The internet is certainly one means of communicating this info. However, one of its challenges is that it is often left to the bands and venues themselves to log onto these sites and update their details. Unfortunately, even with the best of intentions, this is often not done. Most webmasters agree that the printed gig guide does not compete directly with their web sites because the diverse nature of the two, actually provide a different experience and service to the reader/user.
In terms of existing local printed material, it is either too diverse in nature – with music playing only a minor role – or does not do justice to the performance side of music, concentrating mainly on the dance and “cocktail set” crowd.
There appears to be a definite need for a gig guide magazine that is purely about musicians, by musicians, for musicians, that is current and local. Your LMG is where it starts.
