Showaholic finds your concerts
My friend Spencer Miles has launched a great new service showaholic.com that automatically finds upcoming music concerts that match your tastes (here is the announcement). Showaholic can automatically injest a set of your favorite music artists from your last.fm account, or you can enter them automatically. You also enter your location, and then the system will automatically search for upcoming shows in your area that you might be interested in.
The really cool part is that the system doesn’t just show you concerts from your favorite artists. Instead, it uses last.fm to query for other artists you might like, and shows you their concerts as well! The is a really great extension of the last.fm music discovery model into the real world. Sign up for free and try it out. This is great for hard-core music lovers.
