The Indie Venue Bible
From the creators of The Indie Bible, comes The Indie Venue Bible - a unique, comprehensive directory of live music venues. It is in electronic (.pdf) format and lists 26,000 venues and 2000 booking agents in the U.S. and Canada. The listings are arranged by area, making it easier for you to route and plan your tour.
The Indie Venue Bible lists the obvious venues that you can find in any venue directory. What sets it apart from the others is lesser known venues that you won't find listed anywhere else.
You'll find thousands of coffee shops, restaurants, house concerts, theaters, clubs, halls, churches and book stores - any place you can land a gig! There are also thousands of wonderful venues listed in smaller towns that have been ignored by the mainstream venue directories. For example, there are listings for over 300 cities and towns in New York State alone. And to make your life easier, the Indie Venue Bible has painstakingly researched which genres of music each of these venues feature.
The Indie Venue Bible is sold in separate PDF directories by region. The directories are available for the following regions: U.S. Northeast, U.S. Southeast, U.S. North Central, U.S. South Central, U.S. Northwest, U.S. Southwest and Canada.
