How do you find out about events in Tokyo, before they're just about to happen?

I love Timeout's 30 things to do this weekend amongst others, but I find these appear too late to ask friends if they want to come.
They're either busy with some other plans, so I either end up doing what they want to do when they want to do them (which is fine, but I'd like to do something I want to do sometimes), or doing things on my own (which is OK sometimes, but also quite depressing at others).
Some things I like to do are
Gigs - especially alternative and electronic music
Cultural events - Such as this weekend's Thai Festival in Yoyogi park.
These events don't just suddenly happen, so they must be listed somewhere else. I know some are on Timeout beforehand, but browsing through them now it looks pretty thin on the ground for the next few weeks. There's all of one museum event listed, and two pages of music events. I know there's more going on in this amazing city. So how do you find out what's going on, in advance? Or am I doomed to trawl reams of random websites with scarce listings to find one little nugget of an event?
