Users of the new app will find a convenient, thorough list of Philly-area concerts, for which they can also instantly purchase tickets. Gregg Mungan, Venue Production Manager for popular Philadelphia concert club Johnny Brenda's, said, "The new XPN Concert Calendar is super impressive. It is comprehensive in its design, from the live stream to the alarm to calendar listings, and much more. It's experiential and informational, with a simple, elegant design. I'll be using this app often." Concert promoter Jesse Lundy of Point Entertainment remarked, "When I'm not working on a show and want to know what's going on, I now have a great app that tells me where the good shows are."
The new app provides much more than concert and club listings, however. "We're filling a void with this concert app," said WXPN General Manager Roger LaMay. "You will not only be able to see where bands are playing but you can listen to them on XPN and read about them on The Key....all on one app!" The new app's other features include:
