BMI Live is a new feature on the BMI website that allows songwriters and publishers to get paid for the performance of their songs at live gigs, no matter how big or small the venue. It’s an incredible thing for touring musicians who can now take advantage of this program to help offset travel costs and other expenses.
According to BMI:
BMI Live allows performing songwriters to input up to six months of their performance data to be considered for payment. Songwriters may input their tour information at their convenience for concerts from the previous six months and receive these royalty payments quarterly. Both headliners and opening acts may input tour information, and the program is open to all BMI affiliates.

Pretty simple really. Login, input the band/date/venue info, and type in your set list for that show. Then get paid.
