Houston's 5 Best Live-Music Venue Web Sites
Look and Feel: 8
Ease of Use: 8
Mobile Friendliness: 8
It's been a good few years for the venerable music establishment in the Heights. New owners have gussied up everything and that includes the Web site. Wisely, it is short on flair and long on the important stuff like shows and news updates. The calendar is great and the ticket system goes right to their vendor, quickly and easily. The site is obviously well-maintained and updated regularly.
The one quibble I'd have would be with the layout's overall width. The desktop version is too wide even for larger monitors. It would help if it were slightly narrower. The first time I opened it, I had to increase the size of my browser window to keep from scrolling left to right.
Recommendations: Fix the desktop width. Change the words "Coming Soon" to "Upcoming Shows" so people don't mistake it to mean "Under Construction," since that is commonly used shorthand on the Web.
