    yep. I use it help network with other bands in the area. Considering it is free, you can upload your music, you can set up your gig dates, and you can keep a blog- it is a win win tool for promotion

    I define feedback as intelligent criticisms about music or marketing. And if that is how you define it then no. I really don't get any feedback.

    I have gotten in touch with a couple of different bands and gone to their shows (you need to put out the effort to see them first before they will see you).
    I’ve also gotten a few new people to come to my shows but 99% of them have other things going on. But I am in LA… and everyone has something going on- you really need to market yourself correctly for someone to spend a Friday or Sat night going to see a new band when they could be doing a thousand other things. Alabama might be easier for you if there isn’t nightlife outside of hitting bars and checking out new bands.
