I built lllocal - which lets you find and listen to bands that will be playing in your area soon.
I’ve been thinking of this idea for a long time and I put up a public version a couple of months ago. It’s brilliant to get feedback from people and I’ve also got tickets to two events while testing it out for myself (Keaton Henson was great and we’re off to see Daughter in a couple of weeks).
My motivation for lllocal came from:
- my personalised last.fm ‘events near Oxford’ are almost all in London. Granted, these bands are ones who I’d really like to see and Oxford is pretty close to London - though I wanted to see more live music without spending evenings on a bus.
- we got tickets send out spotify playlists to their mailing lists. I love this style of suggesting people to go and listen to.
There is still a huge amount to do - though I’m really happy to have something online. If you have any feedback or suggestions I’d love if you got in touch or left a message on the feedback page.
