The Great Irony of Gigspots
Greetings and Welcome to Gigspots! My name is Sam Campbell and I will be your host. is a website designed to be a clearinghouse for bands and live music venues. Fans of live music can go there to see a concert calendar, pictures and profiles of bands/venues and videos of bands performing live. From Pittsburgh to Philly, from the Poconos to the Potomac, we want to be the site you check to find great live music in your town or on your travels. was born April 18, 2011.
This blog will give me a chance to sound off about our region’s great music scene. As I visit cities and towns seeking great music, I will share the cultural treasures I discover. Art, architecture, dining, history and outdoor adventures are some of my interests besides music. I hope you find my writing lively and entertaining. I hope you give me some feedback and guidance. Share your experiences and expertise!
Here’s the great irony of Gigspots. I am using the internet and social networking sites to say, “Step away from your computer!” Social networking is not socializing. To “Like” a band or music venue is not the same as experiencing them. They are as different as having a picture of a dog and having a dog.
You know how your dog is always glad to greet you, whether you went to the mailbox or Miami? Become a regular at your local spot or at a band’s area appearances and you will get the same type of greeting, minus the shedding and slobbering (typically: your results may vary).
The next few blogs will highlight some of my best experiences from year one at the helm of and preview the big events to come. Please join in with recollections and invitations!
