Press Release via BillBoard:
Internet radio service Songza has partnered with location-based social network Foursquare to reward its listeners for checking into music venues.Beginning Monday (Sept. 30), Songza users that check into venues on Foursquare will get a Songza badge and be given access to a special playlist that was curated in collaboration with Foursquare. In the coming weeks, Songza will unveil the second level of the Songza badge. The first 500 people to unlock the second level will receive six months of free listening on its advertising-free premium level of service, Songza Club.
The partnership is rooted in the two companies’ home of New York. The Songza-Foursquare tie-up will be officially announced Monday evening at event hosted by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg for “We Are Made in NY,” the city’s economic development initiative that highlights its technology community.
The New York theme extends to a list of venues Songza has contributed to Foursquare, although other technology centers like Austin and San Francisco are also represented. Canada, where Songza launched in August 2012, has its own list of 15 music venues. “Unexpected Best Venues Ever in NYC” offers three hole-in-the-wall music venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn. “Best Brooklyn Venues to Stand Close to Bands” lists 11 venues including Glassland Gallery, Union Pool and Death By Audio.
Songza co-founder and chief content officer Eric Davich answered some questions about the partnership, its relevance to Songza’s mobile users, and how Songza tries to stand out in an increasingly crowded Internet radio field.
