Houston's 5 Best Live-Music Venue Web Sites
5. Warehouse Live
Look and Feel: 5
Ease of Use: 4
Mobile Friendliness: 6
The Warehouse Live website is about what one would expect to find from a typical live-music venue in most cities. It's dark -- a little too dark -- and heavy on shows. It scores low on updates as the front-page news is four years old. It also gets low marks for difficulty in locating directions. It's not on the home page and not under "contact." It's actually under the "about" section, requiring two clicks. Not good.
On the plus side, the calendar is well-maintained and the site looks basically the same on a mobile browser as it does on a desktop -- no Flash or weird code. It also has good access to the venue's ticket vendor, making that fairly easy, though they might want to update the site's template on the vendor page because it is out of date.
Recommendations: Get that address and map onto every page of the site. Update your news or remove it. Consider going with a white background and dark text instead of the inverse. It would make it a lot easier to read, particularly on a smartphone.
