Built On A Weak Spot (aka: BOAWS) was started in December of 2006, ever since then the main focal point of the blog has been to expose readers to the best in noise-rock, post-hardcore, shoegaze, and indie-rock that might not get much attention elsewhere. There is also a slight emphasis on rock music being produced throughout the Midwest.

The blog also features monthly mixes that are put together by the author of the blog that are geared toward helping readers discover music from the past and present, providing a variety of music from the previously mentioned genres.
