Some of this is a little dated but much of it is still good. Sorry about formatting. I held this in an Excel spreadsheet and had to convert to text to post.

i think if you have the means to travel to play somewhere as far away as south bend (2-3 hours) you should think about taking a weekend, booking a friday- saturday and sunday out of Indiana, cause to be completely honest i think the whole indiana scene kinda sucks. Not all of it but there are definetly places better than indiana. Maybe do a show in louisville kentucky (about 4 and 1/2 hours) on a friday, play nashville on a saturday and then hit indianapolis on sunday on the way home or something. There are some decent venue's in louisville ... and in tennessee rocket-town is fornicatin awesome,(not just b/c its attached to a huge skatepark) but also b/c you can work out a contract with them where you will get gas money and they will get you a hotel room. In indianapolis i dont know of many all ages venue that book on sunday but you could check out club logo's they really support local's. Or go north hit up chicago on a friday, milwaukee on a saturday and maybe south bend sunday headionmg back... cheers is pretty cool for a bar in south bend. Also for playing shows.... i think that myspace is one of the best tools available to books shows. you can look for local shows by area code, then ask a band to swap shows. Or check the www.byofl.org ....

there are places other than indiana that aren't far away.
