A community of musicians and venues who seek to build a more personal, engaging and collaborative scene on a local and national level.I am in a band. I book shows. Demo please. I have questions.
With technology making it easier for anybody with a CD Burner and GarageBand to dub themselves a "band," the playing field has become saturated to the point that legitimate experienced acts struggle to book shows. At the same time many venues are becoming wary of their inbox, many resorting to excplicitly forbid booking requests via social networking sites. There is also an exciting undercurrent of people hosting shows in their homes, from full-on aural assaults in damp low-ceiling basements to gentle folk standards played in a cozy living room. There should be an easy way to sift through the noise to help both venues and bands find common ground.
