Need a Push Please

So I wake up this morning, and browse a few web pages that I frequent, and I see a post on a message board explaining that a solo artist I really like, Dashboard Confessional, played last night on The Late Late Show. I missed it. I missed it and I'm really upset. Even my friend who turned me onto DC missed it. Why did we miss it? Because we didn't know about it.
What I am looking for is a better "push" of relevant information on the internet. My hotmail accounts fill up daily with junk mail. I hope for a day when equal amounts of information that really interests me arrive as well. I know the junk mail isn't going to stop, and that's not what I ask for. I get a few things being pushed my way currently: Wired News, Epitaph News, GameSpot Spotlight, and the occasional NFG newsletter. I used to get Suck Daily sent to me, I think it's RIP now. I also get Amazon showing me stuff that I think might be tailored to my past purchases, and that's cool. But the internet needs more. I want to know when the a single individual is going to be strumming his guitar at 2 AM so I can choose to watch.
I'm guilty. I run a few web sites, for instance the official Guttermouth site, and I don't maintain a newsletter for the band. I used to, but it was used in rare cases like when a new album was being released. In the near future I am going to change all that. I will strive to keep fans more up-to-speed so that they don't miss any event as I have just done.
Hopefully the karma will return full circle.
