Best local website: halifaxlocals.com
Wi-five! Halifaxlocals.com wins for the second straight year as the best local website, keeping us all in the loop about the Halifax music scene. The site relies on an open-source, message board-style format that keeps things current—and unpredictable. “On the front page of Halifaxlocals, you’ll typically see a lot of show posters, but that was really not my original intent at all,” says site moderator and co-founder Sean MacGillivray. “That’s just what the user base has done with it. That space was supposed to be filled with news, filled with stuff that’s going on and original content, but all of the sudden people got this idea to put up their show posters. And now we’re inundated with requests to put up posters!”
