Use Android apps OnTour and JamBase to stay updated on tour dates of your favorite bands and musicians.
The granddaddy of concert-listing services has made major improvements to its iPhone app.
JamBase is the music fan's standard for tracking gigs, but Bandloop offers a solid competitor. Artists and fans populate and update the show database of more than 50,000 gigs.
JamBase, the best online source for live music listings, has released a simple iPhone app that lets you find live music near your current location.
Concert season is here, and JamBase is the best way to find and track who's coming to town.
This app alerts you whenever an artist in your music library is coming to town or is releasing a new album.
Unfortunately, it doesn't offer anything unique, and has less gig information than competitors like JamBase, Bandloop, and iConcertCal.
iConcertCal for iPhone automatically looks at artists in your iTunes library and alerts you when they're playing a show in your area. It also serves as a more typical concert-finding app.
It's entering a crowded field, but the ability to import artists from iTunes and other sources, instead of having to enter them manually, gets you started fast.
Digital-music companies are acknowledging that MySpace is a part of every musician's online kit. Instead of creating an alternative, they are letting users tap into what MySpace offers.
