Book us by pull-request

  • Fork the repo
  • Clone your fork
  • Create a branch
  • Create a markdown file here (in gigs/_posts/), named as
  • containing these fields:
location:    {whatever address}
time:        {24hr format, quoted because YAML}
price:       {optional, with currency symbol}
facebook_id: {optional, if you have an FB event}
latitude:    {where in the world}
longitude:   {is your place located?}

(The dashes top-and-bottom are important. See this existing event as a guide)

  • bundle
  • jekyll serve
  • Look at http://localhost:4000/gigs/
  • There should be a link to your event
  • If that looks OK, push your branch and submit a PR onto our master

And then I guess we negotiate in the PR discussion and merge when everybody's happy

This will also embed JSON-LD in the event page:

<script type="application/ld+json">
  "@context" : "",
  "@type" : "MusicEvent",
  "name" : "Raw Funk Maharishi live at The Comedy",
  "startDate" : "2014-10-22 00:00:00 +0000T20:00",
  "location" : {
    "@type" : "Place",
    "name" : "The Comedy",
    "address" : "The Comedy, Oxendon St, SW1"
  "performer" : [{
    "@type" : "MusicGroup",
    "name" : "Raw Funk Maharishi",
    "sameAs" : ""

because who doesn't like a bit of Linked Data?

Seriously, if you do this, you have a very very good chance of us playing your show
