Finally – a proper use for a mashup

I’m new to the new music scene of “Emo” (Emotional Punk, apparently), but following a link from a trends site I found Mylocalbands.com. From here you can find the site for Fall Out Boy. Here, fans can post pictures they’ve taken of their fave band and find out where eachother are for meetups etc. This seems to me like a fantastic mashup idea and pretty much confirms my view that most social software is pretty pointless until it’s applied to a content environment. In this case people are able to network around being a fan and into music. Similarly MySpace did well out of music. And of course, Last.FM. And last night I heard about a start-up that will apply social networking to people who like Wine. It’s a natural fit. So, while everyone works this out for themselves, enjoy Fall Out Boy’s latest offering.
