I don't know much about US live poker, but in the UK Grosvenor Casinos
offer 50/1 live poker games
. I usually play in the Birmingham one. It's full of fish.
For aggression, the worst thing you could do is try to be more aggressive just for the sake of it. Don't underplay your strong hands. If you have AK, and there's a preflop raise, don't be scared to raise them. If they call, and the flop is low like you said, then it's possible you have the best hand. If you have position, and they check, C Bet. If you don't have position, I would check-raise with AK.
Just throw out tester bets. A lot of the time, people will fold.
