hey all, my roommate recently joined a band and the bulk of their gigging is mostly talent shows, showcases, and battle of the bands kinds of appearances. and while at first, i was sorta mocking inside, turns out they've been getting alot of great press this way. heck, a few nights ago, their bassist was asked to play on local rapper's album after playing a Sugar Hill Gang riff during soundcheck! so, anyone go this route? how successful has it been for you? what's a good place to start? besides trolling craigslist, any places online that'd help me find something in my area?
