Here's a cool new Web 2.0 application. Simply type in a city and state, and you can see upcoming (musical) shows, and hear mp3's from the bands performing. In addition it's a local podcast, constantly updating you on the local scene.

What is Podbop?
Let's look at it like this:
Old way: Looking up concerts in your town on an event site, googling 100 different bands, tracking down an MP3 for each band, and then deciding which show you want to go to.
The Podbop way: Type in a city, get MP3s, discover a band you like, and go see them.

What is podcasting (a.k.a. the Podbop Feed)?
It makes your life easier. Take the Podbop Feed, dump it into iTunes (or any number of podcasting applications) and it will automatically download your city's MP3s to your desktop. Try checking out the Wikipedia entry on podcasting if you are still confused.
