Not meaning to be critical, as it looks like it could be very useful, but how accurate is the information? Or is it more accurate than the information on the web site?

I notice that the first act I planned to see on the Thursday - Grace Potter - is still mentioned on the web site schedule as being on in Mojo at 4pm, but she isn't in the app schedule.

I notice there is always a caveat "subject to change without notice" around the schedules, but is there a "schedule of truth" anywhere?

Any info would be handy.

Weird. Grace has herself down via FB at 7 pm https://apps.facebook.com/concertsbybit/facebook/events/5734536/rsvp?artist=Grace+Potter+and+the+Nocturnals&came_from=89

this is just speculation... but counting crows had to cancel both nz dates due to illness suffered by a member of the band...

it is possible said member hasn't recovered & aus dates could be cancelled, which would open the door for grace potter to be moved up to the 7pm slot they were going to play...

hopefully i am wrong about counting crows... but if they do cancel then i get to see robert cray, so not all that bad :)

That would help me too...Robertt seems to keep missing out in my schedule.

I tried to get confirmation of when GP is on but no reply yet.
That Event with 7pm on Facebook was posted ages ago so I would have thought if it was known Counting Crows couldn't appear then there would have been time to change the program.
I'm doing Robert Cray so looks like I'll miss Counting Crows if they are on.

I hope CC don't cancel, they're on my list. I'm a huge fan of 90s music.

Downloaded it yesterday and the Planner is already set up.

Also a Facebook friend saw Counting Crows last night in Brisbane and said they were great.

I found this very handy. Easy to use even in the dark, well set out and informative. Applause

I tend to be a bit of a luddite, but embraced this with some enthusiasm. Thanks again for making it available.
