Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: CONCERT COMPANION :: Read Review »

Music fans should appreciate new live music discovery app, Thrillcall.

The app offers the means in which to search for, discover and purchase concert tickets and other exclusive offers, all in the space of a few clicks.

Users can check out the latest music listings for major cities, as well as browse and buy local show offers that only appear briefly. These show offers give users exclusive access to some of the best concerts out there. Users, unfamiliar with certain acts, can listen to audio previews of artists to see if it suits their taste.

In each case, it's possible to share live music offerings with friends so it's simple to arrange an impromptu night out to check out new gigs. A built-in map, also, ensures it's clear to see exactly where each live event happens to be located.

The flash concert offers are only currently available in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York, but it'll be spreading to Chicago and Seattle soon.

Thrillcall is out now and is free to download.
