OK, here's the scenario: My bandmates from the UK are coming over here to the US with the intention of doing a mini-tour in the tri-state area in late February. Since I haven't been living here long and don't have too many contacts, I enlisted the help of a promoter - and he ended up being useless - with over a month spent on it, he managed to get us precisely nothing. So, the plane tickets are booked, the guys are ready, but I only have one gig booked. Can anyone here put me in touch with someone who knows the venues in this area - we still need to book five more shows to make the two weeks worthwhile. The music style is melodic rock/metal (think Alter Bridge/Pearl Jam/Staind/Tool). Ideally, we're not after small bar shows - been there, done that. I've got plenty of promotional material for us, CDs, press kits, a DVD, etc. Any and all help is appreciated!
