TIP FOR UNSIGNED AND INDEPENDENT MUSICIANS:
Invite promotors to your events and gigs. I know my personal profile events tab is looked upon by various fans AND professionals looking for unsigned and independent events to go to regularly. Some will feature these in a gig guide! If you know a station had the demographic for your country and they have a live show on the night of your gig, give them a nudge. I know me for one would rather the listeners be out at a live event than sitting glaring at the screen.
I myself will join all events so can keep everyone else up to date on progress
MOST OF ALL – MAKE SURE YOU CONTACT ALL THE PROMOTORS YOU USE IF A GIG IS CANCELLED AND PUT UP PUBLIC NOTIFICATIONS! – some promotors will advertise your gigs for you even if you havent asked ;-) dont make them look like dicks!
Leave your events page up after your gig and people can post feedback, maybe even make a group for ‘the followers of ==band name==’ so they can post notes an reviews of the gigs they follow. im ever awaiting to see ‘the confusers unite’ from The Puzzlers orJake‘s Cobras ;-)
