The Indie Venue Bible can help
The Indie Venue Bible is a unique, comprehensive directory of live music venues. It is in electronic (.pdf) format and lists 32,000 VENUES and 3,500 BOOKING AGENTS in the US and Canada. The listings are arranged by area, making it easier for you to route and plan your tour.
The Indie Venue Bible is constantly being updated. You will have access to the newest version for ONE FULL YEAR! We list the obvious venues that you can find in any venue directory. What sets us apart from the others are the 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, we have listings for over 300 cities and towns in New York State alone. To make your life easier, we went a step further and painstakingly researched which genres of music each of these venues feature.
Once the genres of a venue were determined, that venue was then tagged with a set of unique, colorful Genre Tags. These genre tags allow you to scroll through The Indie Venue Bible and see instantaneously which venues in a given area welcome your style of music. Planning your tour, locally, regionally or nationally, has NEVER been so easy!
