I'm a college student going to school in Wisconsin during the year from a pretty small area. I've been able to find places to play there but they definitely function and operate much differently than anywhere close to where I live in Geneva, IL. It's about 45 minutes from Chicago so I've been pushing my press kits all over in the past few days so I can get some work this Summer.

How do you do it? What's the best way for any club / bar to give you a set? Concerts? I know it seems pretty basic but I'm sure people have had many different experiences. Look forward to some advice, thanks.
