Going to a show? Not totally familiar with an artist’s catalog? Give The Set Listener a try. The Set Listener is a web app that will create a Spotify playlist of an artist’s most recent show.
To use The Set Listener just type in the artist name, and hit the search button, you’ll be presented with a playlist of songs from that artist’s most recent show. Hit the ‘Save this playlist to Spotify’ button and you’ll have a Spotify playlist that you can listen to on your desktop or on your mobile phone.
The app relies on the SetList.fm API and the brand new and super spiffy Spotify Web API. Now that the Spotify Web API supports the creation and saving of playlists creating these types of apps is quite straightforward – just a few hours of coding. This was my first time using the SetList.fm API – its a super resource for setlists from concerts by thousands of artists.
