As Barking Legs prepares to celebrate its 20th anniversary in November, the time was right—beyond due, in fact—for a fresh new look for our website. The new site, created by Bill Ramsey of RamseyMedia, brings Barking Legs into the 21st century (OK, so we’re a little slow to catch on to all this groovy technology) with a wealth of features and options. Here’s an overview of the updates:
On the homepage:
- Slideshow & Billboards The next three events are highlighted beneath a slideshow of artists coming to Barking Legs. And arrow provides a quick link to each event featured in these “billboards.”
