start off by practicing until you have 30 mins set, then go about your local town venues and ask if you could play one night

a demo is a must... then use myspace to find venues and promotion companys around where you live then take them demos and or use myspace to show your music to them and then people ask you to play shows.

No, we don't have a demo yet but there are a couple of pubs near us and a club where they play only metal and hard rock.

My band's first gig came about after the singer was talking to a drunk guy in a pub. Turns out he was the organiser of a local mini-festival and offered us a slot

That said, the singer was an idiot and didn't realise that we were hideously unprepared

The moral of the story is, don't let your singer do any of the work, and make sure everyone involved is sober at the time

you do two things,
1)not posting the same thread twice, because you already have a getting a gig on the front page,
and
2)putting you band name pool in the only band name sticky...notice the word only? It's after the ,and before band...

I gotta say, our singer is the schmoozer of all time, drunk or not. If he talks to a club owner where he wants to play, we WILL play there. As they say, he could sell ice to an Eskimo. Obviously, though, not everyone has that skill...
