The crews that assist touring musos are called roadies for good reason—they tend to spend a lot of time on the tarmac moving from one destination to the next. And during these long days on the road, band managers and promoters affiliated with the musicians need to be one step ahead, in the sense that they have to ensure that there’s an audience at the next destination. And while this might be easier for major musicians that have audiences included with just about every venue on earth, the same cannot be said of the up-and-comers who have no guarantee of cheering masses. So, in an effort to rectify this problem, Julien Mitelberg and his team have developed Bandsintown Manager, an app that makes it easier for artists and managers to connect with potential fans and promote upcoming gigs.
