We know how to search and discover music. Apps like Soundcloud, Spotify, and Pandora have been around for years, giving us the ability to find tracks and artists tailored to our specific musical tastes. But what has never really been prevalent is a quick way to locate the best parties. Sure, there are websites that sell tickets to events, but unless you know exactly what you’re looking for or that vendor is partnering with the venue to sell tickets, there might always been something left out of the equation.
Resident Advisor, one of the best websites for underground music, recently launched their own RA app to help you find the best events in your city. Similar to Bandsintown, the RA App pulls info from your iTunes library to help track down the artists that you might be interested in. But instead of redirecting you to a website, it allows you to actually purchase the tickets to the events, so you can easily pop into a city and make plans on the fly if that’s your style. The app has already gotten a lot of buzz for RA fans, cracking the top 100 apps in the UK, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, the US, and more. You can download the RA Guide for free on iTunes, and search the globe to plan your next night out!
