    It seems Joshua Ellis of Red State Soundsystem is busy developing a Content Management System (think Wordpress etc.) specifically for musicians and others working on rich media. It's called Dbasr, it's free, it's open source, and it needs a hand or three.

    Many of you fine folks no doubt read the Coilhouse blog and so may have spotted this. For me this couldn't have come at a better moment, as I'm currently kicking around a few designs for my own website. Wordpress is very nice, but something that would cater to more music specific needs would be a killer app for me. (Anyone who's tried to customize an mp3 jukebox knows what I mean.)

    Cool. I'll check it out. I've got two bands and a solo/vanity project to test out...

    I hope you guys dig it. I was gonna post it on here, as I pop in occasionally, but I didn't want to sound like I was just pimping myself.

    If anybody has any questions or comments about it, do let me know. I'm really excited by this project, and I think I've done fairly well anticipating what people will want (as I'm a musician myself), but I can always use input.

    And cash, of course, if you're a fabulously wealthy playboy who fights crime and the record industry by night and wants to hit up my IndieGoGo project financing page. (indiegogo.com/dbasr).

    As soon as I have some cash I’ll toss a little their way. Everybody with a creative business can understand why we need something like this, something that sits between Joomla/Wordpress and IndexHibit.

    As soon as I have money to spend, I'm donating. My boyfriend has been struggling w/putting together a site for his music project, and dbasr sounds like it'll do exactly what he wants.
