This Google Map uses the Bandloop API to show upcoming gigs at venues throughout the world. To search for upcoming concerts you simply add your location and a date range and Effing Music produces a map of all the nearby shows.
My favourite feature of this map is that, thanks to a SeeqPod embedded player, you can actually listen to the bands. Therefore if you find a gig of a band you haven't heard of you can check out their sound before booking tickets.
Oh, you can use the site to book tickets as well.
