I wrote a while back about Pollstar Premium going away. That service allowed you to follow up 100 artists and be notified by email when an artist on your notify list was coming to town. It also allowed you to follow venues and cities the same way.
Today I found a replacement. It’s called Tourfilter and is specific to the following cities:
atlanta austin chicago dallas dc detroit dublin houston london los angeles melbourne nashville new orleans new york philadelphia portland providence seattle sf bay area toronto twin cities vancouver western mass
Unlike Pollstar, this service has RSS and iCal feeds – eschewing email (as more companies should do). Some nice features are the fact that it recommends bands based on the artists you add, it allows you to see the tour lists of other members, and if you insist on email – there’s a weekly newsletter. Best of all it’s free (Pollstar Premium cost $10 a year).
It’s definitely worth checking out.
