About ThisWeekLocal

Who am I? Why did I make this?

ThisWeekLocal was conceived by me (Alex Carpenter) purely out of necessity.

I was tired of missing artists I love because I didn't remember their name when I checked venue calendars.

I wanted the ability to skim through a playlist to pick out sounds that I like rather than names that I recognized.


Improve artist discoverability

Improve small venue discoverability

Make cool stuff that people will actually use



Tell me what you think

I would love to hear any feedback on how to take this a step further.
