Hey peeps, I was just wandering what are the best ways to acquire gigs in the UK? I live in the north london area and i have no idea how to get gigs for my band.

Any tips?

Find out places local bands play, and call them. Ask them if there are any open slots for any of their shows.

Or befriend other local bands, and they can hook you up with their shows.

Yeah some sort of recording is a must, they need to hear what they're booking. Making some sort of website or signing up to MySpace and uploading some tracks is always handy.
