If there's something going on in your are, Eventful has it listed. The settings options alone for Eventful are large enough that you'll actually have to sit down and really think about what you want it to show you. There are so many more events in your area than you actually give credit to, so make sure that you don't pass by something just because you don't think it's going to be in your area.
The options available are pretty comprehensive. The only thing that really should be combined is the featured and search tab. These both do essentially the same thing, just one of them lets you search through all the listings while the other makes you browse them.
They have this really interesting function called Demand! that is suppose to alert the band (presumably after a set number of people have made the demand) that you want them to come play near you. You can then follow the band or bookmark them so that you can keep up to speed with what they're doing in the future.
You'll be surprised at how much more active you can be if you properly utilize Eventful. This app is definitely something that all social butterflies will want to keep on their iPhone as it will let them know whats going on every single night of the week. Consider giving Eventful a try if you haven't already done so.
