ShowHopping uses Google Maps to help you find upcoming gigs and shows listed on Last.fm.
To find out what is on in your town you just need to enter your location and the dates that are you are interested in. You can narrow your search by adding the names of bands and artists that you are particularly interested in. You can also widen your search by increasing the distance from your location that you are interested in.
The results of your search are displayed on the map and also listed in a slide-out sidebar. The list view sorts the results by venue and by date.
