ShowHopping Finds Upcoming Shows Around You for Your Favorite Bands [Music]

ShowHopping uses data from Last.fm to map out upcoming concerts and live shows on Google Maps. Users can search by location and radius, or have the browser give their current location, and the webapp will map out all live shows in the area within a defined set of dates. Band or artist names can also be entered to narrow the search, and multiple names can be searched at once to make things easier. More »







TicketFlow Scours Ticket Sites to Bring You Deals [Tickets]

Why leave price aggregation to the airline travel sites? TicketFlow aggregates concert data from thousands of venues making it a snap to find performances in your locale and price range.

Plug a band or artist name in and Ticketflow will pull from hundreds of ticket vendors to bring you all the available tickets. You can narrow the results with parameters like price, date, time of day, and location. Once you’ve settled on a venue, you can compare the seats available, right down to the section, row, and how many tickets are available.

For more concert-searching goodness, check out previously mentioned Livekick. If you’d love to see some set lists and memorabilia from past concerts you’ve been to, check out another cool concert tool we’ve covered called SongKick. Have a great concert resource? Let’s hear about it in the comments.





Livekick Searches and Finds Local Concerts and Tickets [Notifications]

Keeping tabs on when your favorite bands will go on tour can be time intensive, especially if you’re fond of many groups. Music site Livekick will do the legwork for you.

After you sign up (just enter your email, password and username), choose a default location for Livekick to search for concerts. You can import favorite artists from your iTunes library as well as Pandora, last.fm, Rhapsody, iLike, and other music accounts, or you can manually add new artists.

Livekick will then let you know which of your favorites are on tour; the site also automatically sends you newly announced concert recommendations via email or RSS feed and scans direct and reseller web sites including TicketMaster, LiveNation, and Tickets.com to help you find the cheapest tickets.

You can also keep track of your concerts via Livekick’s concert calendar as well as export the information to your own calendars. It’s a solid-looking service, but if you’re a die-hard iTunes user, previously mentioned iConcertCal is an excellent alternative that plugs directly into iTunes and includes a calendar of upcoming concerts that displays inside iTunes.
