Bandsnearby.com is like Pandora for local music (in NYC only right now). Pick a venue and date. For each of the bands playing at that venue, it'll show you a variety of youtube videos. You can rate whether you like or dislike the band and it keeps track of your voting on the sidebar. So now you can decide if it's worth going to Living Room tonight to see a bunch of bands you've never heard of.
