See When Your Favorite Bands Are Playing Near You With Bandsintown

13Aug08

Bandsintown is a really cool site that shows you when your favorite band is going to be playing at a venue in or around your city.  It also recommends artists it thinks you’ll like and allows you to connect with other people in your city that are going to the same show.

When you sign up for Bandsintown, you’ll have to tell it some of your favorite artists and where you’re located.  From that information, it will create a “recommendation cloud” filled with your favorite artists along with ones it thinks you’ll like.  All of the artists that appear in your cloud are playing in or around your city in the near future.  You can add shows you’ll be attending to your calendar and see what other Bandsintown members are going.  There’s also a widget that you can put on your blog or website that displays the shows you’ll be attending, the shows your favorite artist is performing at, or the upcoming shows at a specific venue.

Thanks to Marshall for putting Bandsintown back under my radar!  To see how it works, watch the screencast below:
