    Pros: 

    Fast, accurate, amazing discovery tool

    Cons: 

    Too many songs per artist, only shows weekend concerts

    This is the integration that music & show lovers have been wanting forever, and it was made in two days! Amazing.

    Features to add: Consider calling only top three songs per stream numbers, and allow it to display more than just weekend performers as that can be very limiting. Maybe a weekly playlist?

    Pros: 

    Super simple, intuitive and just plain useful

    Cons: 

    I wish they built other apps..

    Ive been waiting for a product like this. Ultimately sometimes there are concerts near my house and I want to be able to sift through some of the songs before I go. It would be cool if they allowed you to go back to a specific concert and see what songs were played at the concert and save them to a spotify playlist.

Amazing. A few days ago I tweet this: If only every "Request for Product" tweet came to be. 🤔

@rrhoover "If only every Request for Product tweet came to be" --> Another Product Hunt project idea? 🤔

Hi Product Hunt, My name is Guillaume and I built this with my co-founder Mario. We're both developers and live out in Venice, CA and recently quit our jobs to pursue a cryptocurrency startup, Ember Fund. The reason we're building this is because we saw a tweet from Ryan Hoover (Founder of Product Hunt) 48 hours ago and we thought it was awesome, so we built it 🙂 We hope this product can help you discover new artists in your city. We designed it so it’s really easy to use, no Spotify login required, the playlists are auto-generated and public to everyone. We use the Songkick API to find the artists performing in the city you choose. Let us know what you think! P.S. If you're into cryptocurrency check out our ship page --> https://www.producthunt.com/upco...

@guillaume_torche @cedricamaya Hi Cedric, This is Mario, one of the other crazy makers :) Thanks! Glad you like it. We leverage a simple EC2 instance running a Flask (Python) web server :) Simple but effective.

This is great! I saw Ryan's tweet, and thought it would be nice to add this to my music player app. It would be nice if you could add genre to the search criteria, so if I only want to listen to punk or jazz, I don't want J Lo coming up in my playlist 😅

@markohlebar JLo.. scary thought indeed. Definitely would be IMO the next feature to build on the backlog! We were thinking it would be cool to leverage the Discover Weekly playlist to understand what music you like and then generate a list based on that :)

@astghik_azaryan Hi there! We use Songkick API to search for music. I would say almost all cities in the world are in their database. :)
