If you've contacted a band for a gig and don't hear back, how long do you give it before asking someone else?
so I'm not worried yet. I'm just wondering for future reference...
the right process to contact several bands, far more than you need, and see who replies and what their replies are.
but there's one band that I'm 90% sure are too big for the night but I've offered a specific gig on the offchance they'll say yes.
I suspect I'll not hear back from them and then move back to your suggestion.
via email, myspace or agent?
alot of bands dont really pay too much attention to myspace cos they get so many messages on there - plus alot of messages go missing. if its via email, and its a firm offer, send another email just checking they got the first one.
if its via an agent, then thats a totally different kettle of fish.
Which is why I don't think they'll do it! "We have no money but it'll be a great evening" is an argument that I feel I can sway bands with but unfortunately I don't think agents are gonna be quite so receptive to that.
with firm backups in mind. If not, fuck 'em.
