Hmmm . . . I tried registering.

Does it only show you bands you track?

I've just spent ten minutes getting nothing but frustrated with that site. I simply want to see what's on in Zürich. Instead it seems I have to track a load of bands. Can't I just track Zürich?

I just checked them out - thanks for the tip - I love them!! Shame they don't have more dates up on their calendar but I will keep an eye out. Hope there are more bands like them around - gives me hope
Don't know if you meant Sheila she loves you or the morning benders but if it was the first they are playing in La Catrina in Zürich tmw evening for Free good idea to get there a bit early though as it fills up quickly.

Yes might be an option.

Not doable on public transport as the last train departing towards Zurich leaves at 22.40.

Why don't they play at the Volkshaus in Zurich like normal bands do?
Don't get their marketing strategy?! But then if they ever had a marketing strategy they'd be a world famous band by now.
They usually play at least 3 times a year in Switz anyhow..

Who told you that? The Wedding Present have hardly ever played 3 times a year in Switzerland (if ever).

Yes - Shelia she loves you - I won't be in Switzerland until the 11th October but will checking out all the bands and venues. Do the gigs usually finish in time to catch the last train back from Zurich to Basel? Here in scotland there are some venues that run 7 to 10 pm and last train is about 11pm but most venues run to midnight or later.

Well if you're moving to Basel I'm sure you'll have plenty of chances to see them. Most venues try to finish in time for the last train but it doesn't always work out.

Perhaps slightly exaggerated but they do come through quite often. I know for sure they've played Sommercasino in Basel several times.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Tell me about it! I'm immersing myself in Grinderman, to get used to it so I won't be too confused on the day. Having said that, they may do a couple of their badseed songs.

Karma to Burn
Les Caves du Manoir
Martigny

Deftones
Frison
Fribourg

Bandsintown.com is pretty cool but has some limitations. I'd like to be able to opt out specific locations (like Zurich and anything in France) and it would be cool if you could feed it a list of bands from your music collection. Aside from that a nice utility. A friend told me about something similar that works with your itunes collections, feeds your band names into a database and returns upcoming concerts for bands in your collection plus similar bands.
