We have just reuploaded the US data due to a feed error over xmas. Can you please re-check and let me know in reply? Also, which city are you in please?
It has some events, but as a local concert promoter and database administrator I think it is more an issue with the ZVents website that you are using as your database for the app. I'd never even heard of it before I was looking at the GigFinder app.
I live in Houston, TX and I can tell you that there are probably on average about 3-5 gigs a day, but the ZVents has mainly only major stadium/arena events. I would venture to say that you're not going to get a complete list searching only one websites' database. I webscrape of multiple websites or database relationships is in order. Difficult without someone working on that constantly to expand the different communities. Last.FM, Ticketmaster/LiveNation, among other would help. It would also be useful to go to smaller ticketing agencies, because the list of club/small venue shows is abysmal. I want the app, but with its limited number of events right now it is not as desirable. I can definitely offer some solutions.
traveler007 can you keep us posted if beta labs takes you up on your offer or if you notice that they have started to add more databases to the program? Thanks!
The listings aren't so bad now for my city (Minneapolis), though far from exhaustive. But the option to buy tickets is awful, offering tickets for $70 which are available online from the club for $20. Maybe this is outside Nokia's control.
