iConcertCal:

“iConcertCal is a free iTunes plug-in that monitors your music library and generates a personalized calendar of upcoming concerts in your city. It is available for both Windows and Mac OS X and supports worldwide searches.”

New features in iConcertCal 2.0:

“Today we are releasing a major new version of iConcertCal. This new release builds on the power of the initial release by now including cd release dates (with links to pre-order albums) as well as the ability to share your personal concert calendar with your friends and find other concert goers in your city. Here are the highlights of the new features available with version 2.0”:

A new calendar of upcoming album release dates for artists in your library
Provides links to pre-order upcoming albums
Lets you share your calendar with your friends
Lets you see your friends’ calendars
Lets you highlight shows you care about for easier reading (and to share selected shows only)

That this app scans your music library and tells you about soon to be released albums from artist you already have is HUGE! I have not found any other service that does this. Has anyone else?

I have it set to display my favorite streaming radio station’s (kexp.org) “now playing” track on my desktop via a curl command. You can do the same with lyrics, etc.

learn about your music listening habits, find people with similar taste, and find similar artist to what you already like. An alternative is Mog.com.
