Where To Book a Show – Venue/Tour List

Everyone seems to ask me where or how they can get a show. So what I decided to do is to start up a list of  places to play. I know there are whole websites devoted to this kind of thing but a lot of them seemed dated. You’ll of course notice that not a lot is listed here, that’s where you come in. Send in places your band plays and we’ll add it to the list. If you know one of these venues is no longer doing shows let me know. I’d like to keep this list as up to date as possible.

    South Carolina Venues to Add
    Here are the best venues in SC
    (by the way the best way for a new artist or a band to book shows is NETWORK. Swap shows with bands you meet, and never burn a bridge with any band/promoter/venue owner. Don’t expect to get paid anything until you are something. If your not pulling any people in your own local scene the don’t expect a guarantee. The best advice is What you pay for is what you get, I have seen millions of bands go the cheap route and go no where. the fact is a band is a business treat it the same way as if you owned a company. Pay for legit recordings, and if you don’t have a money then find it. Do what you have to do to do the essential things, even if it means getting a credit card and financing essential things. NEVER play a show with out merch, and CDs. The more tangible things you have to sell, the more money in your pocket OH and people advertise you name. Your band is a Brand Name put it on everything you can. Don’t cut corners pay for something worth buying. Example: If you pay 200 for 50 shirts at $4 a shirt. You sell the shirts for $10 – that’s a 60% profit and people are paying to ADVERTISE YOUR BAND. Usually its the other away around. Like i said you are shooting your self in the foot if you have nothing tangible to sell or even give away at shows. I have seen amazing bands at shows and they had no merch or cds I could buy- so with in 30 minutes I forgot there band name because there are so many band names its hard to keep track.Now I will never be able to find them or see them again (unless by chance). So why did they even play the show? What did they accomplish? Nothing. It was a waste of time. Another insider is steer clear from doing a full length album until you are that legit and well known. Doing 3-5 song e.p once every 2-5 months Is such a smarter option. Number One you are paying less for studio time, Number Two In between each E.P you can CONSISTENTLY build hype for the next E.P Release. This keeps your fans on there feet waiting, and it keeps them active on your myspace facebook, shows, etc. Write out a marketing/ad plan For EACH E.P release and ALWAYS have an e.p release show. For all the bands only on a local level please please keep your shows distant from eachother. If your playing Twice a week at the same 2-3 Venues in your town you will lose people from coming out to see you. Why go see a band playing the same set list that plays everyweek. You need to promote for each show and build up hype. Get creative. Do a charity event, or maybe do an acoustic set, or maybe do a cover set, Do it at a dance party, Just keep it different and important. Make people LOOKING and ASKING to see you play. Do the weekend tour when ready. Start playing your surrounding states and get connected and NETWORK through other music scenes. Build fan bases in other towns

    Ground Zero
    Contact is Mick (venue owner/promoter)
    Howard Street Spartanburg SC
    (email info is on there page just google ground zero spartanburg SC)

  10. anon

    just a heads up, Championship Bar & Grill/ Nice Guy Booking in Trenton, NJ really fucking sucks. Michelle, the lady that runs Nice Guy Booking, has no idea how to promote shows. Whenever bigger bands come by, she will throw 10 bands onto the bill and force them to sell tickets in order to play so that she can make the band’s guarantee instead of just promoting the shows.

    • Republicratband

      Anon, thats how most places are… We’re from Ohio and its the same way here…

      And if you’re looking in Columbus, Ohio….

      Scarlet and Grey Café

      Down Front Entertainment

      Look em up on Myspace

  11. Warning about Live 59 in Plainfield, IL

    Look out for Live 59 in Plainfield, IL. The owner is notorious for making verbal agreements with bands regarding payment, then refusing payment (and changing stories regarding the reason why several times within the same conversation). Before committing to a show at Live 59 make sure it’s understood what draw they’re expecting, what tickets will cost your fans (this also changes without notice!), what time the show will start (also hard to nail down at this venue), and….well, everything. Approach this venue with caution.
