Couchsurfing websites are already a vital tool in the modern-day touring musician’s arsenal. Online services such as the recently relaunched Better Than the Van hope to make the process even simpler, letting artists and music fans connect with patrons willing to host them. Plus, help all involved discover new music, locate shows to attend in remote cities and uncover unexpected new performance venues. Fans can even use it while following their favorite acts. The next time Widespread Panic comes passing through, show your generosity. Or just hope for some van-made burritos.
