If you are interested in performing at The Lager House, please read the following!
Any band interested in playing PJ's Lager House please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include all of the following information in order to be considered for a show:
Local Bands -
- A brief description of your band
- A link to your website, MySpace page, EPK, or other page with MP3s
- A list of the area venues you have played and area bands you have played with.
- What date(s) you are available to play.
if you've never played at PJ's Lager House before, you will likely be asked to play a weeknight or free show first. This will allow us to get a feel for your sound and your draw. If you draw well and are not too difficult to get along with, in all likelihood you will be asked back.
Touring Bands -
Touring bands are welcome at the Lager House and we will do our very best to accommodate you. Of course, it is easier to get a show if you partner with a local band that draws well and complements your sound.
Any band -
local or touring - that is booked at the Lager House should not have another show booked in the immediate area one week before, or after, their scheduled performance. Exceptions can be made at the venue's discretion.
Bands split money collected at the door after the soundman and doorman (if applicable) have been compensated. Distribution of funds will be left to the band who booked the show (The more you draw, the more you make). There are no flat pay guarantees.
If you have sent an e-mail to our booking address and have not received a reply within one week's time, feel free to send a follow-up e-mail.
After you are booked
Promotion of your show can only add to your draw - which makes us want to book you again and again. Even if you have played Lager House before, you are still responsible for promoting your show.
As soon as you are booked, please send a short description of your band and photo to email@example.com
, with the date you are performing in the subject heading.
Send us POSTERS!
- We love em. Paper posters should be dropped off / mailed to arrive at the bar NO LATER than TWO WEEKS before the scheduled performance.
Jpegs of your posters need to arrive via e-mail NO LATER than TWO WEEKS before the scheduled performance for our website and social media sites. Send jpegs to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Update your websites -
Band websites and social media calendars need to be updated with details of your performance upon confirmation.
"Events" are better than a single post your FB wall. How to make a FB Event
Contact local media - Although we send our calendars out to the local press, they are sick of hearing from us all the time. Send out your show details at least two weeks before your show date for that extra lovin' press coverage!
