My Ambitions for Concert Promotion

I have decided that I would like to start putting together my own shows. I will start out small, since I have never done this before, and just get one show set up for now, with my band and one other band. If this goes well, then I will do more in the future.

First I need to find a good venue, and figure out what my costs will be. Then I need to come up with some idea of how many tickets I can sell, so I know how much I will need to charge just to cover my expenses. I don't know allot about concert promotions, so I am going to try to find some smart people to help me with this.

I want to try to keep things as simple as possible at first, but still have the event be entertaining enough to draw a decent crowd. I don't think I want to deal with any kind of concessions at first, that way, all I should need as far as help goes is some one to work the door. I also have to figure out how much I will need to pay this person.

To make this all work, I need to get a handle on the promotion end of things as well. I need to figure out what I need to do to get a decent turn out, so the bands can make some money for our efforts. This is just brainstorming right now. I am sure I will be able to get these questions figured out with some hard work, and the right help.
