the headache of managing multiple event calendars

I am just beginning to explore this platform and thought I'd share that the one endless PITA for me in trying to maintain a website & social networking is having different event calendars for every site. I cannot stand having to enter the same information for the same gig over and over. With multiple bands to deal with, it is really a drag. I have been looking for about 3 years for a good single calendar that I can feed into every site I use. I finally discovered Soundkick. Soundkick calendars are designed for musicians and seem easy to feed into social networking sites and can also be embedded in a website. I wish they were a bit more customizable, though. Anyway, I noticed that a gig calendar is part of this platform, and I haven't tried it yet, but I thought I'd share that feedback. I REALLY only want to enter each gig once, on a single calendar, and feed it out to different sites, if possible... I'll use whatever calendar allows me to do that.

    I can second this. I want to use the one that's most integrated into my site (when I get done building the site out, it'll be this one), but I'd love to be able to embed it elsewhere.

    Definitely. We're all about integrating with as many services as possible. We'll definitely do some pushing out, but we'd also like to pull in from some of the rad services like Songkick — they're great and we've already talked about that one already.

    We won't be tackling new calendar stuff for a little while. What's in there is really basic but we've got a lot of plans to come before the fall.
