Bay Area startup Local Music Vibe provides free, locally curated listings for all live music, everywhere. The service is designed for people who want to find more live music in more places and spaces. Recently recognized as a “Notable Startup” at the SF MusicTech Summit (http://sfmusictech.com), Local Music Vibe integrates information from BandPage, Soundcloud, Facebook and other social networks to present a view of all live music in a specific geographic location.
John Hanke, Director of Niantic Labs says “Local Music Vibe does a great job of uncovering the hidden, underground, locals-only music scene. It's a perfect fit with Field Trip's philosophy of helping users discover unknown delights in the world around them. We're thrilled to have them onboard."
Music lovers who visit localmusicvibe.com can easily discover new artists and venues in any town. With the Field Trip app, they can have that experience with them at all times. While other services focus on following well-known artists on tour, Local Music Vibe puts the focus on the community and encourages people to explore and promote their own local music scene. Active users earn Vibe Points that are used for recognition and redeeming promotional offers from local businesses.
According to Dave Champine, co-founder of Local Music Vibe, “Google Field Trip makes local music discovery easier than ever by notifying you about nearby shows. It can be very challenging to find cool, undiscovered talent in your local scene, especially if you’re not in a big city. This technology also encourages social interactions in real life, which is good news for everyone.”
