While I was working on my “Intro to Podcasting” workshop presentation, I rediscovered Podbop, and only after trying it was I blown away. It’s a really good mashup of podcasting with Eventful’s listing of events in your area. What you get is an RSS feed which you can plug into iTunes (or any podcast aggregator) to hear music from any band coming by your town. It’s a pretty disruptive way of learning about upcoming performances, since you’re literally discovering bands by their music, sorta like try before you buy your tickets. If you’re in the Buffalo area, here’s the Podbop page for us.
