Hey new here. Im in a band called Common Collective and run a half ass website http://thelocalsounds.net
where I've posted some articles about booking which amount to some pics of various venues and contact info. TLS booking articles ->http://thelocalsounds.net/booking-gigs
The list is not complete there are still some venues that are not on there.
I've become a semi-promoter as a result of the tls web site and performing with Common Collective. I have some dates booked over the summer and Halloween weekend at the Bard's Town (Formally Big daves Outpost, formally fat cats), a bowling alley at Strike Zone (Out by KY Kingdom) and Harleys Main St Tavern downtown. You could easly book at any of these venues own your own (Except Strike Zone) or you are more than welcome to get on a date that I all ready have booked at these places. Just call/txt me 502 286 9322 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
, its a google voice number so you may have to leave a message. I 've been putting quite a bit of hip hop on these events but don't let that discourage you, mainly Im not very in touch with the rock side of louisvilles music scene and would love to put more actuall bands one these bills. If you can bring your own crowd then performing with a hip hop act wont be a problem.
Also Skull Alley is now Uncle Slaytons, a smaller venue that attempts to thow 'upscale' events. I've tried booking the myself but haven't had a whole lot of luck as they want to retain control over who plays and show concepts.
Also as if you didn't allready know Cahoots has built a damn good stage and is hosting shows. Look for a guy Eric Snider for booking info. He's only working directly with bands and generally not open to promoters running shows there until he gets to know them. But It's a good bet because hes a hard worker and has been doing shows for a while. Any way wifey is calling got to go.
