The Vegas Indie Band Survival Guide

Wanna be an indie rock star? Randy Chertkow and his band-mate were struggling to make a name for themselves when they wrote The Indie Band Survival Guide: The Complete Manual for the Do-It-Yourself Musician. Now, bands across the U.S. and Europe are using their book to build websites and kick start their careers. So how do you grab the spotlight today? How do you market your band? The guide's author, and members of local bands (Imagine Dragons, Afghan Raiders, and A Phoenix Forever) talk about how to make it big.
