Not enough for you? There are fun interactive maps to the clubs via the Google Maps API.

Other ways to get this info:

1) The handheld-optimized version of the site, or a new simplified text version of this page, for you lo-fi fans.

2) An RSS feed. AND! A weekly oggcast! (OK, it's just my WXDU radio show.)

3) An iCal feed of all the listed shows, updated nightly.

4) This listing is posted once or twice a week to ch-scene, the mailing list which is itself a mirror of alt.music.chapel-hill.

5) For you web 2.0 fans, we have a facebook app *and* a Twitter account.

6) This amuses me:
