Nominate Levitt for the American Planning Association's Great Places in America 2014 #mygreatplace

What makes each Levitt pavilion special? Maybe it’s the architecture, the history, the community, the concertgoers…or all of the above! Levitteers know better than anyone how amazing Levitt spaces are, and we’d love for our fans to nominate their favorite venue as the People’s Choice for the American Planning Association’s Great Place in America! Use the hashtag #mygreatplace on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook to submit your nomination before October 15.

Even if you’re not actively looking for it, the influence of mobile technology on our daily lives is obvious. Whether it’s an ad campaign for a next generation product, a scannable QR code on a flyer, or the person in front of you at the coffee shop scrolling through headlines on their smartphone, it’s hard to escape the ubiquity of cell phone usage. According to a 2013 poll by Pew Research Center, over 90% of adults in the U.S. now own cell phones, a vast increase from 65% in 2004. Of those phones, 56% are considered “smart,” which opens a whole new world of possibilities with just one word: apps.

When it comes to music, our first love here at Levitt, apps can help improve our listening experiences, allow us to create hooks or beats on the fly and expose us to new artists or genres that we might not have heard otherwise.

Just like when you’ve discovered an awesome song and you just have to tell the world, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite cool, lesser-known music apps to share with you! Whether they’re made for creation, discovery or organization, we hope one of these apps can add a little more music to your lives. Try them out, let us know what you think and happy downloading!
