I’ve always been a big music fan, but never really took the time to enjoy all of the amazing local talent we have here in Manitoba. Over the past year or so, I’ve made somewhat of an effort to take in more local music and it just got a lot easier.
This week Manitoba Music officially launched their new live music app, Manitoba Live.
The free app features a live music calendar of concerts and festivals happening around the city. You can search events by venue, date, artist and even by proximity to your current location.
Once you select an event, you’re given all the details on the venue, featured artists, ticket prices, times and any other important information about the event. The app also allows you to load events right into your iPhone calendar.
I’m always missing events that I would have loved to attend simply because I didn’t hear about it. This app eliminates that problem and puts everything in one place.
My good friend, Audrey Neale also has an awesome blog, GoWPG, that has a great event calendar for things happening around the city.
