    PROMOTION:
  • We ensure our events are listed in the Colorado Springs based, Alt-Weekly, The Independent.
  • All events are promoted on our Facebook page, as well as this website.

    LOCAL BANDS:
  • We hope that local bands know that it is up to them to help us promote these shows.
  • Unfortunately, If you do not promote your shows or have a descent draw, we will be unable to book you in the future.
  • While we often try to make our own flyers and poster for events, but we do not always have the time. We've learned that Bands who make their own flyers and pass them out have BETTER SHOWS.
  • Local bands who get invited to play the most are those who COME to shows. They generally have a bigger draw and better reception. We're looking to build a music community and it can only grow if you come and support what we already have. There are no spectators in local music, only participants! So participate!
