Way over 100 shows in 2012- a personal record!
After going to a few concerts in January, and with several more planned in the coming months, I figured it was best if there was a way to keep track of them throughout the year.
I logged each into my iPhone using Google calendar for double-entry, along with songkick.com.
If it was an event I had already (or just) attended, I would change the calendar entry to say “show”. If it was an event I had tickets for, I’d make the entry say “concert” (until I had actually attended it). This way, I could type “show” in a search and see where I’ve been and “concert” in a search to see where I was going.
Unfortunately, Google calendar has miserable export and capture capabilities, so I haven’t found a good way to automate or enhance any of this stuff.
I’ll try something else for 2013.
