READ THIS BEFORE CONTACTING US
1 - Please include the following in your message: links to music/videos, venues you've played in Brooklyn and what your draw was the last few times (each band/performer needs to bring at least 10 people), and what dates you are available.
2 - In general we do not do guarantees. Each band is payed, after house/staff cost is covered (varies depending on the size of show and staff needed), based on draw, with priority to touring bands. Performers need to bring more than 10 people to expect payment. There are several other venues in the city that are better suited for young touring bands who are still working to build their draw, yet still expect payment. We do our best to be fair with each band/performer, and try our best to give younger bands the opportunity to play with more established acts whenever possible.
4 - CONTACT email@example.com
We have a lot of shows to coordinate, so please be patient.
AFTER YOU HAVE A SHOW SET UP WITH US:
1 - If you make a poster, send one to: XPO 929 / 929 Broadway / Brooklyn, NY 11206
2 - We will make a facebook event and put tickets for sale online. Remind us if we haven't sent you a link and you can't find it on our website.
3 - Promote the show in every way you can. Remember that it is your band's responsibility to bring people to make your show a success. We do not have in house promotion other than facebook, twitter, ticketfly, and our website.
4 - Unless otherwise noted, load in / doors are at 8pm, and the shows start at 9. Door price ranges generally from $5-$12.
5 - Most shows will be 21+, (we will still do some ALL AGES matinees), and will be specified as such on the calendar.
6 - We are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Please keep track of your stuff. This is Brooklyn.
7 - Each band gets 1 comp (complimentary guest). If you bring more than 20 paid people, then we can negotiate more comps. If you bring less than 20 paid people, please do not hassle our door person about getting your friends in for free. Part of being a performing musician is selling yourself to friends and strangers.
8 - Promote the best you can and we'll all do our best to make it a fun show!!!
