    "Songkick makes it easy to find artist tour dates but you must sign in with Facebook. Having this app serves as a reminder to check for shows you may want to see or even just know about. Songkick displays the tour dates, tour venues, and locations when you click an artist link. Songkick not only lets you know when your favorite bands are are going to be in your area, but lets you purchase tickets as well."

    "Eventbrite Organizer is a perfect app for organizing everything business-related, from sales to the list of meeting attendees. It doesn't quite have the scouting functionality that I was looking for, but it's still a great app."

    "Good if you're backpacking and have time for wild adventures, but not always great recommendations if your just want a nice and relaxing time with friends at low key events. All in all, it just depends on what you're interested in. Some categories aren't as useful as others, and they play down any negative reviews/warnings that might alert you about avoiding a gig, but all in all, it does what it says on the box - gives a few quick ideas on what stuff is going down nearby, if you're bored. So a good little app to keep handy as long as you take it with a grain of salt. "

    "This app shows decent events lists if you live near a major city but if you don't or don't want to go to a major city for an event you are basically SoL. It also doesn't make it easy to find the prices for the events."
