I was not sure what this app did. But it is really cool. The app searched the group's I listen to then found out where I live and bow it let's me know when my favorite groups are playing near by. It is not obnoxious. Nice app. I do not like any mainstream groups and lots of times I find out I just missed a show. We will see if this helps me get to see Lucinda Williams. I have missed her several times hearing about the show a week after the show.
This does not capture all of my saved producers events. Some I will get notifications well in advanced, some not until 1 or 2 days before, some not at all... I only keep the app for the off chance I get notified in advanced while I still continue to do my own periodic research of my favorite artists.
This app is useless! Conflicting show dates, flat out WRONG show dates, listing events that don't actually exist. Missed two artists that I would have loved to see simply because they were listed as playing halfway across the country... On that same day!! Songkick is WAY too unreliable if you want to find shows for the artists you love.
Can't even complete setup - just an endless loops of "oops, something went wrong" when you get to the location. Attempting to join via Facebook also caused an error, and trying to connect Spotify made the entire app crash. Nice idea, but app is broken.
When you first install the app it immediately attempts to access your storage to scan your music without asking if that's something you would like, and also to get your location. It feels kind of like they are trying to force these features on you. The first time I used the app it also just crashed on the login screen.
So simple and easy. Wish there were a few more features. Also dont like when it pops up an artist having a concert.. but then its a festival and the artist u picked is just a feature or guest. It doesnt differentiate between solo concert & festival. But still pretty awesome app.
Browsing shows can be like working through a bowl of pistachios. Like, they’re all great, but every now and then you hit the salty mother lode. With that in mind, we’ve added recommended shows to the bottom of every event page, making it easier to surface those hidden concert gems. Suggestions are powered by the plans of likeminded Songkick users, so look out for some familiar faces in the pit.
