Liking and following Cari on Facebook or Twitter is certainly a start. She also posts some killer shots from Brown County and beyond on Instagram (you can see some recent pics at the bottom of this page, in fact).

Here’s how it works: you install the app on your phone or visit the website. The app can scan your iTunes library for artists you like or you can manually dictate the artists you would like to track (like Cari Ray)! Then, when those artists announce shows in your area, you are notified…you can even control how and how often you get notifications! But probably the easiest way to get started is to click the button we’ve provided in this post and start tracking Cari Ray now! Thanks, and we hope to see you soon along the way!
