First the Facebook app, now the real thing

As you may have noticed, we have launched a Facebook version of BandTracker on Facebook Platform, but now it’s time to officially introduce the beta launch of Oodle’s newest service: BandTracker.

What it is

In short, BandTracker is a free service that allows music fans across the US (and expanding to the UK and Canada soon) to track their favorite bands, and for bands to connect with their fans. With over 210,000 bands and nearly 500,000 concerts (and growing!), BandTracker is endlessly useful if you’re looking for something to do this weekend or even tonight, or if you just want to see your favorite band when they’re coming to town. Have you ever kicked yourself for missing out on seeing your favorite bands because they came and went without your knowledge, or tickets sold out before you even knew?

All of this means that you no longer need to search for concerts when you’re looking to go out – BandTracker does the work for you. All that’s needed is for you to input your favorite bands, your area or postal code, and your email address, and BandTracker send you emails whenever your bands are playing in your area. It also provides a link to easily purchase tickets. And, if you don’t see one of your favorite bands coming to town, BandTracker provides a weekend concert calendar so that you’re never wondering what to do on a Friday night.

BandTracker Widgets

Oodle BandTracker also allows users to create widgets for their blog, MySpace or personal web page to express their style and showcase their favorite bands. For fans, the MY BandTracker widget dynamically displays fans’ favorite bands and their upcoming local shows. For bands, the BandPromoter widget showcases their popularity as well as generates emails that notify their registered fans about upcoming shows.

BandTracker on Facebook

As we’ve talked about before, similar to “widgets” for MySpace, blogs and other web pages, BandTracker is also available as an application for Facebook users, allowing users in the US and UK to track and share bands within their social networks, and for their friends to see what bands they are tracking.

So check it out now! Just head over to and try it for yourself.

Also, for those of you in San Francisco, come check us out at Sugar and Gold’s record release party this Friday night (6/15) at 12 Galaxies! Tickets are only $8 and doors open at 8 PM (show starts at 9:30). See you there?
