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.

Enjoy a New Band Of The Day Every Day of the Year

Band of the Day is iOS music history interactive book publisher 955 Dreams' - known for hits The History of Jazz and On The Way to Woodstock - foray into the music discovery genre. And they have come up with an app that should make indie music lovers happy every day of the year. Band a Day is exactly what it sounds like -an app that features one new band each day. One a listener is likely unfamiliar with if they get their music from FM radio. The selections are from the indie scene, but from across many sub-genres from rock to Latin to pop.

Every day the app presents an artist in-depth in a GUI designed specifically for the iPhone. Users can listen to full-length songs by the artist or listen to a mix tape, curated by 935 dreams, that features similar artists. There are also detailed biographical pages, interviews, the latest gossip or “buzz,” and a selection of YouTube videos featuring the band in question, along with a catalog of their albums. Of course all the music can be purchased easily from iTunes.

But the user is encouraged to share their favorites using social media. The app incorporates Twitter, Facebook and email, along with a star system for users to create a favorites list and pass it along. Sharing videos and songs earns the user additional tracks to spice up the daily mix tape. Users can also vote for a band they want to see featured via twitter using the hashtag #bod_pc, - the pc meaning “people’s choice.” The music player looks slick, the sound quality of the recordings is good and the variety of artists, albeit from the limited sample I was able to check out, seems extensive. It’s free to try for a week. To keep, it costs $.99 a month or $9.99 a year – we went for the whole package. It’s a great new way to discover over 1500 new songs a year on iOS and share them with the world.

In Awe Over Aweditorium

iPad App - Designed for iPad only

Music discovery is a rapidly changing, rapidly evolving industry that is just blowing up with fantastic new ideas all around us. Gone are the days where we all used to read magazines like Rolling Stone or listen to the radio to find music, we are even past the era of music videos littering the cable airwaves. The tech/music savvy are now using apps and online services like Pandora, Slacker, and YouTube to find what's new, and even those new age mainstays are falling by the wayside. With millions of new songs being released in this digital age, we need a smarter, more interactive way to find the music we crave.

Music start-up, thesixtyone, has launched a beautiful new form of music discovery on the iPad called Aweditorium. The basic ideas is a put a bunch of up-in-coming indie artists in a digital space that is easily navigable and extremely inviting. In the app, you get a big grid of artists to choose from, with each grid piece able to be expanded and experienced. Once you click on a grid piece, the band's "single" will start playing and you will be treated to some "Pop Up Video"-like information about the band and their happenings. If you really like the band, you can also watch the included interviews and other videos that are within the page.

Finding music has never been more fun, with tons of digital content available at your fingertips. There are no hoops to go through either, with all the content in the app (and the app itself) being entirely free of charge. The app has speed to kill too, allowing you to quickly navigate through a sea of new artists with just a few nifty touches.

If you like indie music and you want to find yourself a new band or twelve to listen to, be sure to give Aweditorium a whirl. It's prettier, more informative, and more ambitious than any other music finding app out there. Pick it up for free today.
