    Hello everybody,

    anyone have a good idea of how to organize a gig real quick? Like within the next month or so? Doesn't have to be big and flashy, just as long as the place has a stage and a PA system.

    Very grateful for any pointers!

    Just contact the booking agents for Beijing's live music venues.

    Venues like D-22, MAO Live House, 13 Club, Old What Bar, Jianghu Bar, Obiwan, 2 Kolegas and Yugong Yishan are prolific and host shows 3-4 times per week.

    You can find their contact information by searching through our Groups above (top tab). Or you could just Google them.

    You may have trouble hooking something up at the last minute -- most venues have cemented their schedules a month ahead of time -- but who knows, maybe there's an opening somewhere.

    But your success on landing a gig also depends on many variables:

    What's your style? Are you unique and refreshing? Can you draw a crowd? How experienced are you? Do you completely suck, or are you actually quite good? Have any demos or bios that you can attach in your email?

    Shit like that. Good luck!
