    Are you playing anywhere around Irvine soon?

      We're actually trying to find venues right now. It's been tricky between school and everything...any ideas of local places we should send our stuff to?

        My son's band just played at The District in Tustin, which has just switched to acoustic-only artists (might work for you guys) and they're playing at The Spectrum on 2/6. Both outdoor, transient venues (not the best but beats play-to-pay venues and merch sales are pretty good). They've also played at Blue Laguna Lounge in Laguna Beach which is a small venue but interested in building a rep as being supportive of local bands and does pay a little. There's also an upcoming show at UCI (non-paying) that The Impulse is playing with other bands (a day time show for charity) on 3/3 -- they might be looking for more bands. Also you should try to get an interview on ocrockradio.com -- they will get your songs into their rotation. Since you guys are probably over 21, there's more available for you -- check out this website: www.indieonthemove.com for booking contacts and venues in the area. Glad to help you guys any way I can!

        Thanks for the tips =) Yeah, after the initial wave of shows we sort of ran out of venues locally that we knew to contact. This really helps.

        What kind of music does Impulse play, again? Is it viable for a double booking?

      No problem. Good luck to you. As for The Impulse (who are rolling out a name change in the next week or so and then going on Itunes), they play alt rock/indie rock (they have 8 originals recorded and do covers of songs by Phoenix, Kings of Leon, The Killers, MGMT). Check out their MySpace if you want to hear their stuff...and see if you would be a good fit for a double booking...alsostop by their set at The Spectrum on Saturday, February 6th if you get a chance. They're playing on the stage in front of the ferris wheel and sharing the 4-hour set with another OC band No Look Escape.
