We are proud to announce the new LRN Gigboard, to better allow artists, venues, and hosts to find opportunities.
Venues (Listening Rooms and House Concerts) have a spot in their profile where they can designate a target month that they would like to book. Until now, these target dates/places could only be found by looking through individual venue profiles on the site. Now, all these opportunities appear on one page – the Gigboard!
Also, artists have a number of avails they can promote in their profiles, listing a region and month along with additional details. These are listed on the avails pages of both sites for venues to find.
The Gigboard now cross-references this data for artists, which makes avails even more powerful than before. While looking through the Gigboard, artists will now see venue entries highlighted if they match an avail. For artists without a lot of time to explore profiles, this is a great way to quickly find opportunities. (List your avails, then visit the gigboard.)
- Hosts/Venues: Venues can benefit by receiving better-targeted inquiries… no fussing about available dates… if the music is great, you can move forward quickly. For out-of-the way venues who don’t see many prospects, this is a great way to get more artists to reach out to you.
- Artists/Agents: List your most important avails in your profile, then visit the Gigboard and see if any highlighted entries jump out at you!
A long overdue and heartfelt hat tip to Jeff Robertson, who wanted to see this Gigboard years ago!
