The project I have been alluding to and soliciting volunteers for, IS LAUNCHING TODAY.

The simplest way to explain it is from the Podbop Info page:
Old way: Looking up concerts in your town on an event site, googling 100 different bands, tracking down an MP3 for each band, and then deciding which show you want to go to.
The Podbop way: Type in a city, get MP3s, discover a band you like, and go see them.

Daniel Westermann-Clark and I are music lovers. We created this website to expose new bands and create new fans. You can listen to the mp3s for your city on the page itself or take it with you in a podcast feed. We support every city in the world.

Podbop is a mashup (we're going to Mashup Camp!). We use the Eventful API (remember my glowing review about them?) and mash it up with our own database we have built up over the past 5 months.

The power is really in the people. Podbop will get exponentially more useful if you help out. No events for your city? Register on Eventful and add some; it's easy! Got a band with mp3s? Add it to our database (and add your shows to eventful).

I hope you enjoy Podbop. Thank you to all who have helped out listing bands and supporting us. I really appreciate it. Tell all your friends. Bookmark on and Digg. Email your grandmother!

Oh, and I'm totally voting for it in the Best Mashup contest.
