It’s a big bummer when a band you likes comes through town and you miss it. Your brain can’t be expected to track every single show put on by every single band you like. That’s why SongKick Concerts is useful.
What does it do?
This app ensures you never miss a concert. It scans every place you go for music — your iTunes library, your Facebook profile, and your accounts on Spotify and Last.fm — to find out what you like. Using your location, it checks when the artists you dig are going to be playing nearby.
Why do we like it?
It’s been on iOS for a while, but Songkick just made its way to Android this week. It gives you a personalised calendar full of live gigs featuring your favourite artists. You can also search worldwide and build a list of cities you travel to so you can check out live music in other places too.
Download this app for: Android (free)
The best: free
The worst: tickets are expensive
