March 17, 2014 – StubHub Labs, a division of StubHub, announced a major update to its local market live music and concert discovery app, ShowDrift. The service now offers fans with even more tools to better discover and explore the local music scene, including event recommendations for upcoming concerts based on artists in the user’s iTunes music library.
