Student-Local Music Void: What to do?

Is there still a Carolina Union Production Services?
They would be the ones to handle the live sound.
I think this is a great idea, and I think the Cabaret
would be an awesome place to do it. But why not a
show a month?
One problem, though, is the passing out of the
recordings. I think that you would have to deal with
some copyright issues there.
Also, if you're going to get a band to play a free
show where no beer is going to be available, maybe a
$50 guarantee for the bands would be nice.
Just a few thoughts...
