Here’s a cool mobile app: Bandsintown
The app will scan the music on your mobile device and find all upcoming live shows and concerts of those artists in your area.
It presents the upcoming artists in a Concert Cloud.
You can also slide the Concert Cloud scale to show just ‘Tracked Artists’ or to move it up and let Bandsintown add ‘Recommended’ artists based on what it previously tracked.
If not all of the artists you listen to are on your device at the moment, you can search for artists to add.
There is also a calendar listing of all your tracked/recommended artists.
Yet, if you’re curious about ALL shows in DC (or any city, if you’re traveling) happening every day, there is a feature that will list ‘All Local Shows’, including many of the smaller, intimate venues in the city.
The final cool thing is you can set-up notifications for when any of your tracked or added artists announce a new show in your area.
