Without knowing the right people it's bloody hard. Hassle the promoter (person who is bringing them out) and the appropriate managers/bookers. There's a reason why unsigned/selfmanaged bands tend NOT to get those supports.
But don't let it stop you from trying. There's too many cynics already.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Send a CD to the bands manager, booking agent etc.
Go to their next gig and give them a CD.
Keep working hard, pull a crowd and come to the bands attention.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

First i'd say you have to have a similar style to the headline band. My band being a rock/country band would be no good trying to get a gig with say The Deftones even though I think they are fantastic!! We got a support for Gus and Frank by going to see them at their gigs and getting our stuff to them. If you were after an overseas band support all I can say is good luck - I would imagine that premier would get a majority of bands in first... Maybe try getting your stuff to Dylan or Dave at premier and see if they like it.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
