Booking your first gig: An Insider's Guide to Today's Music Biz: 9 Touring

For most artists that are just starting out the ugly reality of booking shows is that someone in the band will need to do it. Period. But I’ll give you a hot tip. Nobody is going to call you so you’ll need to be the one asking for the gig. If you don’t ask you won’t get. If you are going to own your local market you need to make friends at local clubs that can get you gigs.
