A while back my friends and I got together and started a band. The idea was to have it be sort of a punk/ska thing. We've written a few songs and things seem to be going pretty well. I think pretty soon we may be ready to start playing gigs. My question is how do bands that are more of a rock type go about getting their first gig? Our music isn't really the type you'd find at a coffee shop. I read up about putting together a partfollio on the internet so I understand that aspect (i.e. picture bio etc.) but what do you guys think would be a good place to start?
