Monstro is a cool new app for Android that aggregates what’s popular and trending musically on Twitter. It’s the first music site that unleashes the full potential of Twitter when it comes to music search, sharing and discovery. Once the music is aggregated Monstro links the user to where they can buy it, or stream it instantly.
With the SXSW music festival happening this week in Austin, Monstro has created a specific chart app for just SXSW music. Like the original Monstro, it will aggregate what’s hot at SXSW in terms of musicians, shows, and performances. The Monstro SXSW will crowd source those on Twitter who are at shows, showcases and performances and link users to the artists.
Monstro SXSW charts is a perfect way for people attending the music portion of SXSW to see whats hot and where they need to be to hear the best music. More than that though, it’s great for people at home that can’t make it to SXSW this year so they can hear the cutting edge new music.
More after the break
SXSW has been a haven for independent artists and artists that were able to jump start their careers by playing SXSW over the years. John Mayer, Hanson and James Blunt are just a few artists who skyrocketed or got discovered by labels in Austin at SXSW.
“We want to make it easy for SXSW attendees to see which artists are trending and select which artists to see, and interact with those artists. And, we want to provide a way for artists to interact with their fans,” said Jeff Fedor, Co-founder and Co-CEO, Monstro. “We think we’ve done that by developing the free Monstro Social Music Chart SXSW Edition.”
This year’s SXSW music festival features over 2000 artists playing over 100 stages across Austin Texas. Monstro SXSW Chart will let you know who’s playing, where and when. Then you can use Rdio to listen to the artists to see if they are what you want to listen to at the show.
Monstro will culminate the tweets about music at SXSW and update automatically providing you with more than just a schedule but a way to experience music at SXSW.
You can download Monstro SXSW chart here from the Google Play store.
