What are the best sites to find events by location?

My answer to What are the best sites to find events by location? on Quora

It depends on what kind of event you are looking for.

For general events, Eventful and Plancast are worth a look. If you’re looking for gigs and music, Songkick have what I believe is the most comprehensive database. For interest-based meetup groups, try Meetup. Our site http://lanyrd.com/ lists conferences and professional events, with a bias towards tech but with more and more other categories showing up all the time.
