Livinity plugs you into local live music

10/01/2014

With some friends in from out of town last weekend, we were looking for a concert or a band we might like playing in a local club. The paper lists many local events, but not all of them and it's doesn't always list the kind of music we like.

A new app called Livinity turned out to be much more helpful. Livinity lets you choose the style of music you like - Rock, Country, Blues etc. - then presents a list of shows that include the date, location and distance from your location. We were pleasantly surprised to find that Paul Thorn, one of our favorite artists, would be playing just a few miles from home.


One button plays a clip of the artist's music. Other links give you the name and address of the venue and driving directions. Livinity will also post the activity on your Facebook page and enter it into your calendar.

Now that Livinity is installed on my iPhone, I'll be using it more often at home and especially when we're traveling. Next time we're in Nashville, I can get the scoop on all the acts appearing up and down Broadway.

Livinity is currently available only for Apple mobiles. You can get the free download in the iTunes App Store. See how others are using the app in Livinity's Twitter feed.
