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
