Good news for anybody watching Buddy Guy through Gigity.TV this month! There’s now a mobile app for iOS and Android, making it easy to tune in. And if you’re coming to the shows, you can actually share photos or short videos from your perspective with “CrowdCasting.” It’s a good way to make your friends jealous when Buddy Guy is running through the crowd and stops right in front of you to play.
