Work on your musical knowledge and your songs before you try and get a gig. Otherwise, you'll just make a fool of yourself.

Look for Dutch Apples' book on all of this stuff coming out in 2010.
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

Thank you for making a total ass of yourself.

@threadstarter: Just work your way up. Have some friends to your backyard or something and have a small show. Then just work your way up. Look for any local venues near you. I can think of almost five within 25 miles of me that I can get a gig at whenever I feel like (with a month's notice).
