Default The return of Black Box (sort of)

Is anyone other than me old enough to remember Black Box?

It does, and with deeper detail than what this project will have, but the wealth of online information and sharing is how the database is even a thing. Between all these different resources, one will tend to inform the other. The two can happily co-exist.

This doesn't seem like a Blackbox Part II, though - that had tour diaries, photo galleries etc, whereas this appears to be data-oriented and showcasing setlists in time-limited IG stories. It'll be fun for the people who use that app, but it doesn't set out to replicate the Blackbox.

Yup, agree,

What I meant by the return of black box was that this seems like its an official thing of sorts.

Yep, for sure, and it'll be nice to have any sort of lil' throwback machine built into any of their platforms. I was about to say, anything good and shiny, but when it also feels vintage, even better.
