    I've heard about AAIRUS and the guys I'm planning to play with said they aren't the nicest people and have cameras checkin' you out in the jam rooms. I'd go just to try it but they seem pretty set against it.

    Hey guys, I'm trying to hook up The Dead End Kids with some gigs, as their current options are teh suck. I scrolled back a few pages and didn't see much info, so I'm asking whoever is active. Can y'all recommend me a booking agent that won't rip them off? Thanks in advance! :)

    rt,

    Congrats. The place has a great rep. It's only about 15 minutes from my house, but for some reason, I've never been. Good luck.

    My advice would be to assume they all will rip you off.

    Besides that I would say that they should find similar bands they could gig with and try and build a following. See what promoters they deal with. Once you have a following every booking agent is your friend.

    Otherwise personally I have delt with Jersey Shows and Capital City Concerts.

    Good Luck!

    Really? That's unfortunate. Personally, I've always found them to big nice and helpful, especially the owner Joe. I'd say give it a try and see for yourself though. I haven't been there in a long-time, so maybe things have changed.

    Thanks for the advice. They don't have a promoter currently, I've been spreading the word and getting them gigs here and there. I somehow went from being a software developer to a promoter. Even though the drummer and bassist are good friends of mine, I'd like to pass the work off to someone else as it's too demanding. My phone keeps going off with gig requests. Haha. :)

    Doubt it. I'm gonna send you a PM. I'm at The Pike Tavern on Thursdays in Magnolia. I gave George a small list of places 2 weeks ago to call for gigs. Since then I get the occasional text from Bobby for other venues - not sure if they got booked for one or not. My ex's aunt is a promoter and she's gonna fwd me a list in the next few days. I love their sound. They can really go places with the right hook ups. George is one of the few guitarists that make me go :eyebrow:. Haha. :)
