Free Times just got an online overhaul.

Columbia's alternative weekly now has a website that's easier to read and easier to navigate.

We still have all the features from our current website, including our comprehensive events calendar, insightful news and top-notch music and arts coverage.

We would love to know what you think about our electronic makeover.
