[LAU] using linux to manage your gigs?

this is one of my busiest times of the year for gigging; I'm usually playing at least once a week, and sometimes multiple times a week. there are a couple of things I'm frustrated about:
* my song lists are all on paper. they have no information about the song at all. it would be nice to be able to sort by key, genre (rock, pop, r&b, motown, etc.). it would be nice if calling up the song called up the chord chart, which brings me to my next point…
* I looked through many presentation softwares, chord chart management, etc. they all seem focused on the church crowd. I need something *simple*. I choose a song, and the chart that I have available for it (either text or pdf or whatever) is displayed in a split window.
ok, that's what I want, and no one gets what they want. :) so, I'm open to any and all ideas. what do you use? do you manage your set lists with linux? chord charts? I tried the whole "thinking outside the box" and looked for maybe some file management software, but I got overwhelmed quickly. any and all ideas are welcome.
