Von Badsville Events is always looking to book local & occasional out of town acts. If you think you don't suck, can draw well, are hard working & are willing to promote, the please contact us here:
Also, the following tips might help you get a show with us:
- Come down to Spike's Bar and our shows at other venues and see what the venue is like (21+ only)
- We always recommend Touring bands to have at least 2 local bands on a bill (which we will choose). We prefer to not do more than one touring band on a bill unless they are a proven touring act.
- PROMOTE YOUR SHOW! Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Your website, Flyers, Posters, Local Papers, Word of Mouth.
- Don't contact us if you suck and you know that you suck, save both of our times and practice more before you hit us up for a show. Also, don't tell us you have a draw when you don't and then you clear the room.
- Don't send unsolicited CDs/Press Kits! It is a waste of your time and ours
- NEVER call us with your booking requests. We only work through email
- Don't ask to play unless your whole band is over 21. Come back and see us when you all are of age
- And again, do NOT send us ReverbNation links, it sucks!!
- Bands caught drinking or doing drugs in their vehicles in or around the perimeter of the venue will immediately be thrown off the bill, and will not be asked back
- Always 21+. Unless otherwise specified, load in is 9pm.
- Line checks only, unless otherwise specified
- No In's and Out's on event nights
- No hospitality or green room provided (unless otherwise specified)
- 2 drink tickets and 1 guest per band member (unless otherwise specified)
- Act responsibly on stage. Do not put your fans and our patrons in harms way, like throwing or breaking bottles, encouraging the crowd to break bottles, swinging the microphone or instruments into the audience, etc.
- We DO NOT allow bands to encourage Pitting! Pitting is allowed but please remember, it is not Punk Rock/Rock N Roll to harm others; we are all about having a good time, just not ending the night in the emergency room.
- If you have ideas for a bill let us know and we'll try to find a spot for you on our calendar
- Looking forward to booking your band!
