Some of these places are larger theaters for 1500 +/- people. I apologize for not having all phone numbers for these places. The most important thing is you have a press kit to send to venues like these and you might nab an opening spot to expose yourself to more people, shorter set but exposure goes a long way. You press kit should have a sample cd no more than 3 songs, your a-game material. a short bio on the band and discriptions of your music, both in style and other bands you are similar too. A picture of the band, playing and a "hollywood" faceshot style. I.e. the band as a whole not performing, something that gives a visual of your style. Make you press kit creative but not cocky, when bands come off like they are the next best shit, many talent buyers take that as insecirty and lies. If you band is good you do not have to tell them that. Although any press you have gotten throw that in as well, like reviews etc. You can google most of the contact info for these clubs. I know many of them are not in the exact region but I was trying to look up past places I have been and pout on shows. Many of these places have smaller clubs within for smaller bands. Get the talent buyers info or call and see what promoters work with their venue. It may be Live nation, and other small in town guys. Don't give up, you will be turneed away more then accepted. Good luck.
yo thanks for the suggestions, keep them coming !
Punk/hard rock is not music. Stop playing, or do something original and new. thanks.
The only thing I've learned from love

Try the Grog Shop in Ohio, not sure how far it is from your 3 cities though. Oh and Peabodys, i think peadbodys is cleveland and grog shop is cleveland hts?
