Last but far from least, we come to what has become my favorite Spotify app. We have a lot of great musicians come through the Twin Cities, where I live, but I find it difficult to keep track of all the upcoming concerts for the artists I like. That’s where the Songkick Concerts app comes in (see Figure 5).
Songkick Concerts scans your Spotify library and playlists for your favorite artists, and then notifies you (in the app and via email) when they’re performing nearby. It’s a fairly simple application, but boy, is it ever useful. I’ve already ordered tickets for an upcoming Fountains of Wayne show – which I wouldn’t have known about without Songkick!
