3 Apps to Find Events Near You

What are you doing tonight? Perhaps you are headed out for a night on the town, a movie, or just have plans to hang out with some friends. Making vague plans to go somewhere with friends is the easy part, but sometimes it can be hard to find a new spot to try. We all have our favorite spots that we visit frequently, but what do you do when you want to try something new, exciting, and different?

Here are three apps that can help you find cool and fun local events happening near you!


DoStuff is an app that was designed to help you find out what is happening in your city or a city that you might be visiting. The app’s motto is that every city has a scene, and you just have to know where to look. DoStuff connects you to someone who knows the city you are in, who then connects you to the best concerts, comedy, happy hours, and parties near you.



According to the app’s description, “Event recommendations and maps are available to make the discovery process easier, and you can create your own profile to add events to your personal calendar while being able to keep track of everything.”

DoStuff is free and available for download on both iOS and Android devices.


Gravy is an app that works similarly to DoStuff, in that it can help get you connected to what is going on around you. Instead of showing you all of the events in your area, though, Gravy will connect you to events based on your mood. The app is especially helpful when you are visiting a new place and want to explore it.

According to the app’s description, “Everyone is using Gravy to make plans for tonight, this weekend, or an upcoming trip. This popular app shows you the most relevant event ideas based upon your mood. Open up the app to find something unique and special to do that you didn’t even know about. Discover amazing local events – live music, date night ideas, performances, sporting events, 10K runs, happy hours, kids activities, meetups, places to hang out, just about everything. Jump in and ramp up your fun now.”

Gravy is free and available on both iOS and Android devices.


Meanwhile, SongKick might not help you find the best event to fit your mood, but it can help you find concerts based on your music library and preferences. The app can find concerts in places where you are traveling, and it even helps you find the best place to buy tickets to them.

According to the app’s description, “ [You can] be the first to know about concerts and track your favorite artists so you never miss them live. [This] free concert app allows you to import your favorite artists from services like Apple Music, Spotify, Facebook, and Deezer. They’ll build a personalized local concert guide just for you. You’ll be notified when new concerts and festivals are announced so you’ll be ready when tickets go on sale.”

SongKick is free and available for download on iOS and Android devices.
