Ra Ra Riot is taking a break from their recording schedule to play a show at The Box on Thursday night (June 28) in NYC. The intimate show is in celebration of the launch of the Thrillcall mobile app in NYC. Like Songkick, Thrillcall will track your music preferences and alert you to gigs by your favorite artists in your area. Unlike Songkick, (but similar to the Live Nation mobile app), Thrillcall also gives you the ability to buy tickets for local shows directly through the app itself. What distinguishes Thrillcall from LiveNation, Songkick, and everyone else in this space I guess, is that Thrillcall has exclusive daily offers for shows*.

* Goldstar and ScoreBig immediately come to mind when I think of exclusive daily offers for tickets. ScoreBig has a iPhone app which looks like it is more geared towards sports, but it doesn’t look like Goldstar has a mobile app yet.
