I started an indie band last spring and, after several member changes, we have put together a pretty good set. We have played allot of miscellaneous shows in surrounding cities that range from battles to sorority events at kstate, but it doesnt seem like we retain any fans from our shows and i havent been able to really establish a report with venues. I have done everything from boosting our stats online and make us look much bigger than we are (at least locally) to sending out press kits. I dont understand how some of the other local bands got their foot in the door and are able to play payed shows every weekend. What are some things that you guys have had success with?
