About TheNettle can sting, but it can also be medicinal.
TheNettle.scot cover
Mission We believe -
Inverness has a promising music scene
Inverness music scene is well established
Inverness has a need for constructive criticism and
If you pay to get into an event, you are more likely to be able to fairly review the output as a member of the public.
If you rely on free entry from a promoter, you will feel inclined to write favourable reviews.
Inverness has an established arts scene
Inverness' comedy scene is still emerging, and for the most part the comedy circuit is still finding its feet.

We want to -
provide honest reviews to events in and around Inverness
Be able to write freely, and openly about a gig, event or venue, and still get back in for a second viewing to see if it's improved or not
Be able to write positive reviews where an event has left us with a warm fuzzy feeling.
Write about the specific gig or event, rather than the legacy of the band or past achievements.
Write about the individual's personal experience of the event, gonzo journalism style.
Provide reviews that are entertaining in themselves and interesting to read.
Produce reviews in a timely fashion, as soon after an event as possible
Give writers enough freedom to write creatively, and help the readers live the writer's experience of the gig.

We know this to be true -
Most of the review websites or articles have heavy governance on content.
Normally percentage scores or star ratings on websites are not measured, or unlikely to drop below 60%.
Negativity is frowned on generally by publications in the area.
If you call out an event for being gash, then you are likely to be less welcome back.
