For anyone who has iTunes and loves to see live music, iConcertCal is a must have. In fact, for someone like me who sees a lot of live music, this is the coolest thing ever. As a music journalist, staying on top of all the shows I want or need to see is sometimes a tad cumbersome. But this free plug-in, created by two electrical engineering grad students (sure, they sound geeky, but they created a music app -- how uncool can they be? I say pretty damn cool), just made my music-going life so much easier. iConcertCal is an iTunes plug-in that searches your music library and posts upcoming shows from any artist in your database. I just scrolled through February and March and saw that some great bands, including Field Music and 120 Days, are coming through Chicago.

iConcertCal officially launched on Jan. 19 and the guys posted news on the 29th that they're already working on a new version, which fixes bugs and adds some new features (international concert listings and a radius search to areas around your city) and should be out in a few days. As of Monday, more than 9000 people had downloaded the app and even JamBase has offered to give iConcertCal easy access to its overflowing database of live music -- so if you're a band and want to get in on the action, add your shows here.

I wanted to write about this the other day when I first read about it on IGuessI'mFloating but have been bogged down with reviews for the Associated Press and URB magazine (that's why things have been a little light around here lately).

What are you waiting for? Download iConcertCal now for both Mac and PC.

Thank You for this Ari-

This is an essential addition to my rock and roll wanderings. Also a great way to see that I have a lot of lame music on my Ipod that need to be deleted...NOW.

With Appreciation, Graham
