If you’ve been following us for any length of time, you may have clicked through to our sister site, http://www.DIYgigs.com. The site was designed to help artists easily find venues around the world to book tours independently. The goal was to set-up a platform where anyone could add/edit contact info for venues and we’d approve the updates as they came.
I’ll admit it, after we got the initial site-up, we stalled. We were slightly burned out from getting it off the ground that we lost some energy/motivation to promote it. That being said, over the last few months we’ve quietly started to give it more energy. We’ve got thousands of venues in the system now and the site now opens up to the city where you’re located in.
So let’s say you’re in Los Angeles and you go to http://www.DIYgigs.com, you should see 3 venues we have listed for LA. There’s obviously more venues, but that’s where you come in. If you’re from there, you may know that some of these venues are now defunct or there are some that haven’t been added. You have the power to leave a comment on the venue to say it closed , change the information if its out of date, thumb it up or thumb it down, and add new venues.
We will be promoting it more in the coming months, but we’re currently prepping the final touches on the updated and revised edition of the New Rockstar Philosophy which will be available for sale soon. We’re also in the middle of prepping for a trip out to Italy to help promote the Italian version (physical book!) . We’re very stoked about that.
Just wanted to keep ya’ll updated.
Thanks for reading
