Reviews for Indie Rock 101: Running, Recording, Promoting your Band

<p> A lot of excellent and timely advice that you might take years to amass if you had to find it out for yourself... overall this is a good book with useful (some might say essential) information on running a band and keeping going. -- Performing Musician
