Songkick: Never forget a concert again
There’s nothing more frustrating than hearing about a concert you really wanted to go to…after it played. Fortunately, Songkick will ensure you never miss a band you want to see again, and does it really inobtrusively, to boot.
This app, on iOS and Android, starts by scanning your music, specifically the music you stream over Spotify, Last.fm, Pandora, and the music you have in your iTunes library, and figuring out what bands you like the most.
Then, it assembles a rolling calendar that shows you what bands will be in your town on what date. It’s fairly straightforward to click on the concert and get the important info: where it is, what the opening acts are, and so on.
Most importantly, it offers two key features other apps of this type don’t: extremely early alerts so that you’ll actually be able to snag a ticket, and a city tracking feature. Essentially, you’re able to add cities you go to on a regular basis, or would be willing to travel to, and it gives you alerts and lists for those cities as well.
It’s the best concert tracking app we’ve used, and it’s available for free on iOS and Android.
