Tourfilter now live in Minneapolis

A new concert alert website called tourfilter is now avaiable in the Twin Cities. I checked it out and it looks pretty promising. You type in the bands that you want them to track for you, type in a username, password and email address, hit signup, and they track for you. They sweep over 60 bar and club websites every night to return results and email when new shows for the bands you track appear on these sites.

They’ve been called the craigslist of concerts, but the only similiarity I see is that it’s free and the style/interface is like craigslist. I just signed up so I haven’t seen how fast this updates yet, but it’s free and looks to be worth checking out. A cursory glance of a few local bands indicates that their info is pretty accurate.

It seems that it might especially be useful for tracking local bands who play a lot of shows. Maybe not so much for big national acts that tour once in a blue moon and you’d likely know about onsale dates anyway.

    It’s a nice clean aggregation of what’s playing where and when. A lot easier to look at than, say, City Pages.
