02b. Links may be hidden subject to these rules.
03a. Post new content in existing main music section threads ("Artist's Threads") whenever possible. Use the search function to find if there already is an Artist Thread for any particular performer and make your post in that thread as a reply. Otherwise, your thread will be merged or deleted without notice.
