From the website:
Created by members of the rock band ZELAZOWA, www.zelazowa.com, Indie on the Move was launched to forge a collaborative environment and reliable informational resource for independent musicians to book their own U.S. tours – for free. The concept behind the site is both a DIY (do it yourself) and DIT (do it together) approach to the music industry, and based primarily on the idea that artists working together, supporting the “scene” (local or otherwise) on a collective basis, are typically more successful than those that go it alone.
Indie on the Move is a free service, however, they offer a Professional booking option that assist bands with booking gigs. ‘Indie on the Move professional’ routes your tour, perfects your booking pitch, evaluates your web presence, and contacts suitable music venues in desired markets along your route on your behalf. ‘Indie on the Move professional’ starts at $295 for 10 markets.
