    i'm actually in two bands.....one in the DC area that i've played a number of shows with, but i go to school in Boston and have a band up here that's working on getting off the ground and should be gigging (or at least, able to be) in a matter of weeks, so that's what i voted for.

    I'm working on getting my band, Faded Beauty back to playing shows, but right now we're working on recording.

    I'm also working on getting my solo project going.

    I'm also considering starting a punk/ska band of my own, since I didn't get into Angry Agency.

    I play guitar in a San Antonio/Austin-area band called Thirteen Muses (stuff in my sig).

    We play fairly regularly and are in the process of recording tracks for our second CD.

    Recently we won an online podcast contest (with almost 20,000 votes!) to be played on a national radio show for unsigned talent. The show will be broadcast on various stations across the country, check out http://www.rock30.com/Podcast_Winner.htm for more info.

    I'm in a band called Ablick...we play 2-3 shows a month. We're working on getting a 'set-in-stone' singer; once we establish that I'd like to have a show 3-5 times a month at least. I want me some endorsements :lol:

    though they would be nice...

    Hey Everyone my name is Curt, i have been a memeber of this site since the start of last year and yet i have only started using it now( prob cause i finally ordered myself my first 7 string) But anywho I live in Canada :scott: and i play in a Vancouver based metal band called MuffgoaT we are usually a regular occurance playing anywhere from 1-2 shows per month. But for the last almost 8 months we have been on hiatus as we got rid of our other lead guitarist/ lead vocalist and now have replaced him with just a vocalist. So its now just up to me on leads guitars :mf666: anywho i will be on this site quite a bit as my work is always somewhat slow and i have my own comp (workin hard - hardly workin) lol i'm sure ill tty all soon.

    I play in a Fredericksburg VA based band called Tetryl. We've played Jaxx Nightclub a few times, opened up for Powerman 5000 once. We've played a show hosted by Mistress Juliya (she's awesome!) and a show hosted by Rake Jahn (sp???) so we have had some fun in the couple years we've been together. Recently we've been working on a demo and it's sounding pretty damn good! Just scheduling issues have made it take much longer. We also just kicked out our bass player because he is just a bad musician...not much else to say about that. We're also working on getting our myspace rebuilt as a result. So right now things are slow going, but we'll be back and ready to play many shows again! Especially with some of the local bands on this board (hint hint Division) :hbang:

    I'm in a 6 peice Industrial/GothicRock band called PAIL. We play once or twice a month when we are in gig mode We,ve opened up for Powerman 5000,Wicked Wisdom(yea the band with Jada Pinkett Smith), and Prong. We've relesed 2 full length cds in the last 2 years. I do all of our recording/mixing/programing. Its a pretty serious project but we dont plan on "touring" or anything like that. I prefer to stay home and record.

    Good luck to all of you guys looking and just starting out.
