DescriptionLaunched in 2001 Columbus Underground was founding editor Walker Evans’s answer to a lack of online resources for Columbus’s nightlife scene. A devoted fan of his city Evans grew the site from a social calendar to a resource that helps the local community stay informed on just about everything Ohio’s capital city has to offer. With 2.1 million visits and 8.5 million page views in 2010 the site has seen nothing but growth in a climate that has seen other local publications decline.
