Events site that doesn't suck

I'm excited by evdb, but wondering why this could possibly need Perl AND PHP not to mention Postgres AND MySQL. I guess we'll see soon.
Upcoming.org, the site I developed, doesn't suck. It runs on Linux, Apache, PHP and MySQL, is fully standards-compliant, and includes a REST API.
Upcoming.org does, indeed, not suck, as far as capabilties go. On the other side of the equation though, it does a bit: data. If it had pollstar-level of info, upcoming.org would kick ass on all levels. As it is, it doesn't. (For me, as a Vancouverite, anyway. For people in other locales, it may just kick the requisite amount of ass.)
Bill, you're prolly gonna think EVDB sucks when we launch. No Vancouver events yet. :-)
We're all starting from 0 and working from there.
Kellan, I figure if someone's done a ton of Perl, but not PHP, we still oughta talk. I figure if someone's done a ton of MySQL, but not PostgreSQL, same. And vice versa too. We're LAPPP (Linux Apache Perl PostgreSQL PHP) all the way.
