DO IT YOURSELF (DIY)
Wouldn't it be nice at this point to be sent to a centralized location to learn all there is to learn about this thing? This Do It Yourself (DIY) Music? That would actually defeat the purpose. You see this Do It Yourself is expressly outside of the realm of centralization - on a macro scale. On the micro level, you might be surprised at how this concept is applied, but the attitude is in the name itself. You probably can't just insert your self into a role as a booking agent at a club or a bar, but you could possibly do that at a DIY space. Someday. Not right away I imagine, unless there's some solicitation of complete unknowns. Because that is what you are.
