You can listen to a song on TV or PC as many times as you want, but nothing is quite like being in a concert and enjoying your favorite music with hundreds of other fans. As much as people enjoy concerts, it is a fact that it’s never easy to discover all such events in your vicinity. Most of us find out about planned gigs via social media, but won’t it be nice if there were a social network just for music events – one that you could carry around with you? If you are a Windows Phone 7 user, now there is! Meet Pepper, a Mango app which will let you connect with your music-loving friends, and keep you up-to-date with all the latest gigs and recreational events happening in your area.
