about phillymetal.com

Phillymetal.com was built quickly in 2009 as a response to amazing shows getting poor promotion. Its primary goal is to spread the word about upcoming events but also serves as a reasonably complete history of the bands, shows, venues, and people involved with the Philadelphia metal scene since its launch.

Version 2.0 of Phillymetal.com went online on 4/23/2014.

Chris Grigg built the original site and made it work... somehow. In version 2.0, he handled backend development, migration of the old database, and server administration.

Lauren Hu is responsible for the site no longer looking or feeling like it stepped out of 1998. She modernized the original layout and was responsible for all views, forms, and javascript.

Chris and Lauren work together on projects under the banner of Subvertallmedia. Contact them by email.
