  1. Events Finder
    Similar to Eventbrite, this app is designed specifically for iOS.

    Also powered by the local population, LocalMind allows you to poll area residents for information about events, such as price, crowd size or anything else you’d like to know. This handy app can help you determine what’s cool and what might not be worth your time, based on the opinions of those “in the know.
  1. Gravy

    Are you a musical superfan? SongKick is a concert app that allows you to keep up with your favorite bands while you’re on assignment.
