On this episode of Live Fix Radio we’re continuing our exploration of the social curation and list-making platform Listly and chatting with it’s co-founder Nick Kellet about why Listly is an essential community building tool for concert fans, and a great way to share and remember your favorite live music memories.

And of course, we asked Nick to share a list of his most memorable concert experiences which include seeing Kid Creole and The Coconuts, Melissa Etheridge, John Cooper Clark, Blue Oyster Cult, and a funny story of how he ended up as a bouncer for an Anne Lennox show. Rock on and thanks for listening!

Happy Holidays: A Listly List of Awesome Concert Movies For You

Standard

 The_Last_Waltz

 

We all know that Santa keeps a list of who’s been naughty and nice. But what if he kept a list of favorite concert movies?  What would be on that list?

The last time I sat on Santa’s lap I didn’t get a chance to ask him about his concert movie list,  but if I was to guess, I’m pretty sure these would be on the list.

All silly Santa wondering considered, we know how much you all love lists too, so we thought we’d pass along our own specially and lovingly curated Live Fix Listly list this holiday season for you to enjoy. And I’m sure jolly St. Nick would approve.

In no particular order, below is a whole bunch of classic concert movies, films and fan-made live music ficks and rockumentaries. While you’re scoping out the list go ahead and listen to this Live Fix Radio episode that’s packed with reviews and stories about these awesome movies.

Rock on and have a great holiday season!

Listly Is A Cool Tool For Live Music Fans

I got another cool tool to share with you that I discovered while I was at the Community Manager Unconference.

During my adventures I had the pleasure of meeting Nick Kellet co-founder of Listly. I told him about our community of live music fans here on Live Fix and after hearing about the story behind Listly I was excited to merge this tool with our other live music experiments.

I’ve been enjoying Listly these last couple months and I think it’s a great tool for live music fans for a few reasons.

Feeds Our Current Addictions

First, Listly enhances several of the things we love do to as music and concert fans: make lists, rank, share, catalog and categorize.

Empowers Us

Listly empowers us to socialize, evolve and experiment with list-making as it specifically relates to all the niche topics of the live concert experience.

And Listly makes it pretty easy to add to current lists and create your own. There’s even a gamification element that rewards top users with a point system.

More Meaningful, Contextual Concert Fan Storytelling

But what really gets me jazzed about using Listly is that, if used creatively and effectively, it can empower us to add more context and meaning to the story of how live music changes our lives forever.

Overall, it can be a great tool to rank, document and share our favorite venues, mobile apps, emotions, live albums and concert documentaries, and other supporting elements of concert fan storytelling.

Our First List: Top Chicago Venues

So to kick-start our experiment with Listly I’ve created a list (below) of all our favorite Chicago live music venues that I invite you to interact with right away.

In the coming weeks, I’ll be posting more lists that include our favorite live music blogs, albums, concert fan communities and our world-wide music venue bucket list and more.

Go ahead and check out our list below and let me know what you think of Listly and how we can use it to explore and share our live concert experiences. When you make your own, go head and post a link to your list in the comments below.

And stay tuned for more as we invite Nick to talk more about Listly and live music on a future episode of Live Fix Radio.
