Best apps for keeping up with local live music

Bandsintown; Gigbeat; Songkick Concerts

Bandsintown, like these other free apps, gives you a heads-up whenever favorite artists are due to play nearby, and it can identify those artists based on what’s in your digital music library. A unique feature—“probably the best show recommender” on a single screen—suggests shows by similar artists. (iOS and Android)

Gigbeat features a no-nonsense design. It also lets you track shows in distant cities—“travelers, take note”—and provides audio alerts to notify you of just-announced shows. (Android only)

Songkick Concerts is possibly the best choice for iTunes or Spotify users, because it tracks the artists you listen to using those apps. (iOS and Android)

Thrillcall “departs from the usual formula” by highlighting last-minute shows and special deals. (iOS only)
