Music of the Hour's heart beats with two things: music and community. Just five months old, the website (known colloquially as MOTH) has become an integral, positive element of the city's artistic infrastructure. Reviews, interviews and recommendations are MOTH's bread and butter, although the site's social networking aspect — on which its cadre of passionate users chatter about their latest raves in a Facebook-like interface — sets it apart. MOTH co-founders Berrek Thompson and Justin Price spent eight months developing the site while juggling day jobs and marriage. They're now focused on extending MOTH's influence beyond the online sphere, presenting local-music showcases at the Old Rock House that spotlight up-and-coming locals such as We're Wolf, Flaming Death Trap and Safety Words.
