Toronto startup Show Gopher allows fans to preview concerts listings online by selecting an artist or band, and directly streaming a sample of their music. The site aggregates upcoming shows in the city based on those logged by the Show Gopher team, as well as listings submitted by fans. Users are then able to filter through the listenable concert listings by venue, time-slot and price, with the option to bookmark their favourite shows. The site is perfect for those who are looking for a quick and easy way to determine which artists they would like to see perform, and which shows they might want to attend.

The site has in fact been running since 2012, but it was re-launched recently after an extensive redesign to streamline the service. Currently the service is only offered in Toronto, but with the newly revamped site now up and running, Show Gopher intends to bring its service to Montreal, London Ontario, Windsor and Detroit within the year.
