Here's one I've done several times and may be doing it soon. If a party or event is coming up, offer to have your band play there and then put one together. Usually the crowd are friends so its a friendly audience.

Once you become known to venue managers, you can do the same thing for normal gigs. That's actually the best way to lure in quality hired guns you might not normally get to share a stage with, since that type of player likely views startups as a possible endless rehearsal boondoggles. If the money's right and the gig is already scheduled, chances are you can find a good player (or even a whole band) to fill the spot.
