PreAmped.com – Never Rock Alone
This new site aims to provide the most complete listing of artists and concerts within the US, with 350,000 artists and 275,000 scheduled shows already accounted for. The company goes to the most popular concert listing sites and puts all the data together to make sure the user only needs to hit a single place.
You can explore your city, sample the music that will be played, and see who else is attending similar concerts in your area. As they aptly put it: “Never miss a show and never rock alone!”
Every event, city, and venue page is geo-coded, and the team has also gathered RSS feeds for every location. Emerging technologies like vCard tagging and KML exports are also taken into account in order to give users a better service.
The site premiered on January 1st, 2009. The team told me that they wanted their public beta to make things easy for users just wanting to know what’s going on. They also wanted to keep everything as comprehensive as possible by putting everything in a single place. Likewise, the site fulfils its aim of getting every user involved in his local scene. Upcoming developments will include further accessibility options such as support for mobile devices, and that will surely add more icing to the cake.
