Thank you for your 2 cents.
I'll clarify a little- What are the good small-ish venues for bands starting out? Stage/area should be large enough for a normal drum set, minimal or no PA required, general volume level more like combo amps than stacks, atmosphere non-metal/country (non-douche preferable), business aspect relatively low stress.
There used to be a few venues in my area in recent years but I think they've all shut down.
- Black Market Goods - The Agency - Amped (are they still open?)
Places I can think of:
- Winnings - Blackbird - Brickyard
Anyway, I was just wondering what else is out there. I used to be more on top of this stuff and am trying to find some appropriate options for my friends in this project to get a little more experience playing out.
damn thunda! soft rock/rap hop? that's my new schtick! can i sit in? i'm softer that Charmin and i've got more hops than Marble brewery... and i can think of at least two dozen things that rhyme with "uglier than FUUUUCK"

Haha... nice idea, you sound good for the part... but forget that! Let's start a Doom/Rap band with a few noise dudes thrown in (preferably someone who can make beats/noises using a blender and a broken 8-track). Best of many worlds... all you have to play are a few bar chords at about 60 BPM and we can get all the gigs we want at Small Engine.
