I might relocate to LA shortly due to some circumstances, work being one of them. I play blues in my spare time, and in the town I'm living in right now, the concept of being able to get gigs in local venues is viable due to low competition.
I know that the situation in LA used to be horrendous in this regard, where non famous bands/artists would have to pay the venue owners just to get a gigs.
Is this still the case in LA or has the situation changed? If one is a good but not well known amateur player with a good band, is it possible to get gigs or not? Would like to not have to pay to play a venue!
How does the LA region compare to the NYC region in this regard?
