If you’re going to compete with Pollstar.com in the concert directory market, you’d better be ready to do two things: (1) match that behemoth’s scope and polish, and (2) establish a grassroots, band-friendly oeuvre. Gigmania succeeds on both counts. Its 5,500-city, 70,000-artist searchable database is loaded with free downloads, reviews, and links to CD purchase sites and band home pages. What’s more, the listings are international, so you can mark your calendar the next time Fengzi plays Secret Garden in Guangzhou, China.
