Frequently Asked Questions

When can I load in for my show?

Please load in at the beginning of your rental time.

What should I put as my 'Start Time'?

'Start Time' is when you expect the music to start.

We highly recommend giving yourself at least 30 minutes between load in and the 'Start Time' to minimize stress for musicians, guests and staff.

Should I bring someone to do the door?

Yes, please! Since you've rented the room all the money from the cover goes to you.

Yes! Every show is staffed by a bartender/sound-person.
