Live Venues in Regional Vic

famous1 4 Mar 2005 15:03

I'm looking for advice from bands who have toured regional Victoria re: hot venues to play, bookers who are above board & willing to sign contracts (for shows booked), any experiences of having a local band open up as support, venues which have accom attached & how much to ask for for a gig, venues which do guarantees etc.

Any info & advice - including venues, booker names & contact number - greatly appreciated.</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>

Have a look at The Go Set's website. They do a lot of regional shows. www.thegoset.com.au Guarantees and door deals vary in the country...depends if you've played there before or how well you can bullshit on the phone. Most of the bookers are polite, but they aren't dummies. Expect door deal first time around. Look at going to coincide with any local events...home footy game...mini festival...netball tournament... whatever. Check those 'what's on in regional Vic websites'.</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>

bendigo has two venues of note.
A) the hopetoun. a grungy seedy atmosphere that is absoloutley fantastic if you cna pack the place out. after you get about 60 through the door its a grand evening. the key is getting local badns with good followings to open. 2, even 3 locals are key to getting a good crowd. do your research though and make sure they can pull otherwise the hopetoun can be perceived as the worst place in the universe. like i said though, its absolotuley fantastic when you get a few in.
b) the golden vine. more into your blues/rootsy shit but lately has extended to acts like betchadupa, art of fighting and the red sun band among others. like to keep it relativeely quiet as opposed to the hopetoun where you can crank it all you want. the advantage here is that its a much nicer looking place, and you'll almost always definetely pull on a thurs, fri or sat. harder to get gigs but, especially without a cd thats had some form of rotation on jjj or something. local supports are not as much of an issue here as people go there just to drink in general. the crowd probably aren't your hardcore music fans like you would get at the hopetoun but if you get a hundred odd or more (capacitys around 200-250) in its good fun if youre not a loud loud loud act.</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>
