Starting “The Big Clean” now!
This is a really big project and is going to consist of a bunch of small projects to make sure things stay cleaner and more standardized in the future.
And a lot of it will be behind the scenes so don’t be surprised if you aren’t seeing much happening.

The search has not been working lately. Using basic keywords as suggested on the search page comes back with no results found with only suggestions to import from SongKick. This has resulted in many duplicated concert listings lately.
Update: After contacting support this was fixed
We're working on this!
One thing we've found is that entering a time can be kind of subjective though. For example some people might enter the time that the doors open, or when the concert was scheduled to start, or when the concert actually started, or when the headliner went on.
Rather than give the option to enter any time, our plan is to add options for "Non-Standard Times". For example if the concert was an "Early Show" or an "After Party" or a "VIP Soundcheck". That sort of thing.
Our hope is that solves the problem of false-positive duplicate concerts being merged together because they share all the same date/location/venue/band while also not creating a bunch of "real duplicate" concerts due to slightly mismatched times.
You are definitely not alone! I’m pretty into show posters as well and will think about this for a future update.
Appreciate the suggestion!
