New Orleans and Baton Rouge pages are fixed (mostly)

The New Orleans and Baton Rouge band index pages are fixed and the flyers and photos are back up. Some of the links to external sites are still dead and I'm working on weeding those out. Also, I've started adding the info that people have sent in by email. Again, I appreciate the info from everyone, and apologize for being such a slacker. Anyway, here are the updated pages:

New Orleans band index A-M
New Orleans band index N-Z
New Orleans flyers (I still have about 40 more to add)
New Orleans band photos

Baton Rouge band index
Baton Rouge flyers
Baton Rouge band photos

photos from the 1978 Sex Pistols show at The Kingfish in Baton Rouge
photos from a Psychedelic Furs show in New Orleans in 1982
Men In Black photo gallery
The Normals photo gallery
RZA photo gallery
Wayward Youth photo gallery

For flyers and photos, I definitely prefer the gallery pages over the old directory listing like at Ripway. I's nice to be able to flip through them. The Baton Rouge pages are pretty bare as far as info, flyers, or photos, so if anyone has anything to add, please shoot me an email. I have some stuff to add from old emails, but not that much. Quite a bit of stuff for Lafayette and New Orleans though.

Does anyone know if this flyer is for the RIP from Lafayette? The flyer is from New Orleans. The Dungeons and Dragons illustration is awesome. I love it.

Yes, I am a douche.

Ok, so I admit it. I've been a douche and neglected this site for over a year and a half. In my defense, I've had a lot of stuff to take care of, but honestly a large part of it has been due to laziness. Several of the hosting accounts where stuff was stored have been cancelled or disappeared, so there are lots of dead links. Most notably, Ripway cancelled my account due to inactivity, and that killed all the flyer links. Also, the band photos sections have been screwed because the Image Cave account is disabled and Yahoo killed Yahoo Photos.

Anyway, I finally got off my ass and fixed at least the Lafayette section of the material. What I'm working on right now is getting the material organized so that I can load it all onto one account rather than spreading it all over the place. The Lafayette stuff is pretty much done. I've got about 2 years worth of emailed info to add to the archive once I get the files straightened out. Thanks to everyone who has been sending in info. I appreciate it.

I'm going to fix the New Orleans and Baton Rouge sections next, so that all of the current links work, and then I will add the new info that everyone sent in to all three sections. (New Orleans and Baton Rouge sections are still currently dead link central though.)

Here is some stuff to check out:
