Ah, to be young again, with a talent for music and a do-it-yourself ethic that web service developers seem eager to complement with their creations. Sadly, people who work in banks and such tend to notice when you decide being the new Midnight Oil is more important to your soul than paying the bills.

For those who are encumbered by dreams, talent, and a persistent nature, the Internet has become the conduit for creative control. It’s giving a lot to fans, as the freshly unleashed BandTracker from Oodle demonstrates.

BandTracker does what its name indicates. If a tracked band has a show near you, BandTracker emails you a notification. They have over 333,000 bands in their database, and over 714,000 shows.

If BandTracker has missed a show that you know should be listed, you can email the update to them for addition to the database.

When you find your band has a date scheduled, say the Los Lonely Boys show at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles this Friday, you can connect to tickets for sale via BandTracker’s parent, Oodle. Searching for those LLB tickets found ducats for sale from StubHub and Ticket Solutions among their listings.

Widget fans can grab a couple of BandTracker gadgets for their sites, blogs, or MySpace profiles. The ‘My BandTracker’ widget shows your custom calendar of favorite bands, while the ‘Band Promoter’ widget lets you promote your group to site visitors.

All you need is a red guitar, three chords, and the truth. And some cool online tools.
