level:deepsouth is open to contributions about the music that GenXers in the Deep South were listening to and the bands we were seeing live, and there are two different ways to contribute.
First, if the band and/or album came out of the Deep South in the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s and all you really want to do is send that info, you can submit it for the lists. This offer is open to anyone who knows of a band or album that should be included.
Second, if the music didn’t come from the Deep South in the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s but you want to write about it, you could write something about a band, album, or song and why it was meaningful to you growing up as a GenXer in the Deep South. The watch & listen section of level:deepsouth is also open to works about favorite record stores, mail-order music clubs, experiences in the school band, personal music collections . . .
