<noautolink> ---+!! Guitar %TOC% I am a great fan of live guitar music, in a variety of (mostly acoustic) genres. Fortunately, the San Francisco Bay Area is a hotbed of guitar-related activity, so I'm often able to attend several live performances each month. ---++ SFBA AGS To increase the number of events (and participation therein), I started the [[%SFBA_AGS%][%SFBA_AGS_t%]]. The meetup page lists local events related to acoustic guitar and a monthly [[%News%][newsletter]] provides information on group activity and status. We're also sponsoring some events of our own, including a monthly series of [[Luthier_Showcase][Luthier Showcase]] events. If you're interested in listing a guitar-related event, please look over the [[AGS_Events][AGS Events]] page. This describes the preferred listing format, procedures, etc. ---++ Guitar-friendly venues There are quite a few [[SFBA_venues][venues]] in this area that support live music in general and acoustic guitar in particular. The area has several large performance venues, but they tend to be expensive. Also, there is little chance of sitting near the stage. So, I mostly attend performances in small venues (eg, house concerts). By arriving early, I can generally get a great seat and leaving a generous tip for the musicians is still cheaper than buying a ticket to a Real Concert (TM)! ---++ Promotion for Performers Many performers (eg, guitarists) make an effort to promote themselves, but their efforts vary widely in polish and (I suspect) effectiveness. So, with no particular expertise in the area, I've written up a page on [[Promotion][promotion]]. <!-- * Set Guitar = Projects/Guitar * Set WMC = http://www.meetup.com * Set News = %Guitar%/News/WebHome * Set SFBA_AGS = %WMC%/SF-Bay-Area-Acoustic-Guitar-Society * Set SFBA_AGS_t = SF Bay Area Acoustic Guitar Society --> %ZB%
