Not bad for small music libraries
Unless you keep your entire library on your iPad, getting all your artists in here can be a challenge. The devs provide a bare bones method of uploading (to their site) a playlist exported from iTunes, but it chokes out at some unspecified threshold without any indication of success or failure during the upload. They suggest segmenting the playlist into smaller chunks, but how small? I have a big library, but the text file of my playlist is merely 25MB--the size of a couple of songs. Too much of a pain, and just not ready for prime time in that regard. I should be able to transfer my artist list locally, without entering names one by one. Once the iConcertCal plug-in is Lion-compatible (they're working on it), I'll probably return to that app, though I do like the recommendations feature of BandMate.

Does everything you'd expect and more. Checks your iTunes library and your location and tells you when bands you should like from your collection are coming to town. Great if you like live music.

Amazing app for concert lovers!
I can't say enough about this amazing app! I check this app on a daily basis to keep abreast of all the upcoming concerts in my area. Not only does it do an amazing job of letting you know when artists from your music collection are playing, but it suggests similar artists you might also enjoy. I was somewhat skeptical about the latter, since my musical tastes range from the severely underground to the relatively unknown...but BandMate does an amazing job. For the most part the suggestions are right on, and have even introduced me to several new artists I was unaware of. The latest update even includes in-app song clips! That addresses the only real issue I had with the app. It used to be a pain to exit the app and go to Last FM, etc. just to hear a song clip. Not anymore. The price might seem a bit steep at first, but trust me, this app is totally worth the admission price.

I am in the music biz in LA and I can tell you this is the best thing for keeping up with the concert scene in the big city. Seriously, I have tried to sign up for calendar listings and watch the paper but nothing comes close. Buy it today.
