Here’s a simple-but-handy-sounding update to Jukely — a standby list.

For those of you who haven’t tried it, Jukely offers access to an unlimited number of concerts for $25 per month. (Some caveats: You can only be on one guest list at a time, and you have to pay extra if you want to bring a friend.) The goal is to make it easy for members to discover up-and-coming bands and see as much live music as they want.

Sometimes, of course, you may sign up for a concert and then realize that you can’t make it (or just don’t want to go). You’re allowed to cancel until 5pm on the day of the event, freeing up a spot for someone else.

Jukely says it now makes that whole process easier. If a show that you’re interested in is sold out, you can just add yourself to the (Jukely-specific) standby list. Then, if another member says they can’t go, you’ll get a text message telling you that a spot has opened up.

The company says this has been the most-requested feature from its members. It doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get in, but it beats constantly checking the listing in the hopes that something will open up — or going to the venue and waiting in an actual standby line.
