Get Psyched



  • Jim Fingal
  • Brian Fife




You have a favorite band, but you haven't heard their new stuff. They're coming to down. You don't want to be the lame-o who is only singing along to the classics. Leveraging your last.fm account and songkick's set lists, you're given a refresher course for what tracks you should listen to / buy to get ready for the big show.





This was not at all hacked with performance in mind. It takes a long time to run.


Tools, Platforms and APIs Used

  • Last.fm API -- grabbing a user's top artists; grabbing songs that you've played by a given artist to cross-reference against setlists
