Audiophiles who happen to own Android handsets will want to check out the GigBeat app. The GigBeat app scours your phone's music library to get a sense of your taste, then searches for concerts being played nearby by all your favorite artists.

Even if you don't have any songs on your cellphone, GigBeat can still help find shows in your area by logging into your Last.FM and Songkick accounts. If a show is found in your area that you want to see, you can purchase tickets through the app.

Despite all of the musical advances of the last decade, searching for concert dates and locations has remained fairly ancient when it comes to technology. Searching a band's website or listening to the radio are effective ways at discovering shows, but they can be time consuming. The GigBeat app is perfect for those who love live music, but are constantly on-the-go. The app is available now as a free download and is currently Android-only.
