local bands make more money off their merchandise than they get paid to play.  if you really like a band, buy their shit. buy five copies and give them away to your loser friends who won't come to their shows.  we've got boxes of old local band shit from the 80's and now old friends are knocking down our door to get their hands on it.  some of the people we used to go see actually made itthe big time.  most of them didn't but thats beside the point.

some of the ones who didn't still had some cool songs.  if you stole 'em, not many people would notice.

in a way, ALL bands started out as 'local' bands at one time or another

most the ones we knew who made it big were in local bands that broke up and then they went on to other bands.  a band called Widows Rose had Jason Ward, who went on to take the place of Jason Newsted when HE left Flotsam & Jetsam.  his brother Jeff Ward played drums with Ministry and did a lot of studio work.  the singer for Kyuss went on to sing for Queens of the Stone Age (can't remember his name) but we picked up stacks of free cassettes at a Kyuss show and gave a bunch to our nephew & his friends.

but to be honest, only about 5% went on to 'the big time"  the rest either gave up music; (50%=Thank GOD!), (20%=its a damn shame cuz they waz good), or are STILL flogging it onstage (25%).

the only albums that should be purchased.  Keep money away from those big record labels if you are going to buy a cd it best be local or indie.  If you buy a record from someone on century records or road runner you are killing music

another band we saw all the time was called Smash Alley
I found out recently that Tyler Bates, who was in that band, is huge now, doing
hollywood soundtracks, including the new rob zombie Halloweens and
a bunch of others.  he even won an Oscar but I don't know for which movie.

I think go for it especially, if their people you know. A couple of my best friends are going to play at a local venue and they're a local band. I'm not just doing it to support them. I actually enjoy their music they sound like Opeth combined with Slayer. I think a lot of you guys would enjoy their music too.
