Tin It Or Bin It – Friday 10 June 2011 – Music to our ears

The team here at Hot Tin Roof love our live music, but it is sometimes pretty difficult to keep on top of what bands are playing nearby.

A new free social platform for live music called SongKick sounds like the solution to the problem. It lets you know when your favourite bands are playing and makes it super easy to track and plan upcoming gigs. Fantastic.

It sends email alerts when your favourite artists are playing in your area, lets you buy tickets for shows and create concert calendars. It scans your iTunes, looks at your locations and sends you a list of gigs that you might be interested in.

SongKick is not yet available on Android so it misses out on a very large market…however Android users can download a free similar app called ‘onTour’ to help plan their concerts.


We say TIN IT. What’s not to like? It’s free, fun and useful and if it helps us to hear more live music this can only be a good thing.
