Obviously I love music, but nothing is better than being in the front row, watching your favorite band play your favorite song. Live music generates a feeling that is unlike anything else, and it brings me pain that I haven’t been to a concert since April. Yes, April.
If you live in Grand Rapids you know that the local music scene is quite lucrative–you just need to know how to tap into it. If you hate local music and want to know when other bands are coming to town, or in the near vicing, then check out Songkick.
A beautiful invention, Songkick allows you to plug in and ‘track’ all of your favorite bands and it will alert you to when they come to town, or in as many towns as you want. (I have Chicago, Detroit, Ann Arbor and East Lansing as well, since those are big towns for music.)
You can also track your bands by linking your account o Facebook or iTunes, and it automatically sinks your bands so you don’t have to do it manually. Then it will generate a calendar with all of the up coming shows.
All you have to do is buy a ticket and go!
