Do venues usually provide PA systems and such? Or do the bands have to bring them?

venues usually have PA's but if you want to mic your guitar cabs or drums i think you have to bring some more mics. but yeah they usually supply you with a PA.

I live in a "large" rural area. 90 percent of the venues here DO NOT have a PA system. You should have one anyways just in case there's a gig in which you'll be without one. Oh, and hire someone who has a clue on how to run sound.

venues usually have their own PA but we always bring our own with us because it usually is way better then the one they got,,

most of the venues where i live have pretty good sound systems...good PA's and mike's. if it is a small place they are probably just gonna mike be prepared and bring an amp that can push out some sound. or if you are playin a show that somebody is putting on in a backyard or somthing like that...i wouldn't expect much. usually the bigger venues do have PA's though, or at least they should if they put on a lot of shows.
