5 Faves: Things we're excited about this week 5/9

There’s nothing visually appealing about Setlist.fm. But the site is a useful tool for music fans who attend concerts. Setlist.fm is touted as “the setlist wiki.” Following a concert, attendees can visit the site and list which songs the band played that night. Fans can update the setlists as needed. Not sure about a title of a song? Click the play button next to the titles and you’re shown a video of each song. A convenient pie chart breaks down how many songs of each album were played during the performance. While Setlist.fm is a good way to find unfamiliar song titles, it also can be used as a way to know what to expect when attending a concert. Visit a posting from a band’s previous performance to find out if it’s worth sticking around for an encore or if you should leave before the lights come up to avoid traffic. – Rob Carroll
