Here's a bullet list of things we are going to need to book you:
*Please only have one point person, even if you're a commune of musicians. It makes it easier on everyone.
This should be the person that collects and distributes the roughly 2/3 of the door that goes to the bands, distributes
drink tickets, etc...
*Since you want as many people as possible to play at your show, which bands would you like play with?
*Considering those bands are playing with you, how many people do you expect to show up? Let's be honest here,
it affects staffing and costs. We want to have the correct staffing to make sure you and your friends have the party
of their lives.
*You control your image. So you need to give us a flyer and brief write-up for the show that best represents your steez.
We will promote our asses off for you if you give us the necessary PR collateral. I know that rock shows can get huge
with only 2 weeks notice; but if you give us 21 days before the show, most of the local press can get it out; online and print. If you
have bigger aspirations, you should try to beok your show at least 3 months in advance.
Opening the doors is expensive. So we are only going to do it if you have a group of bands with you that are all going to
bring people. It's not too much to ask your fellow rulers of the rock n' roll pantheon to bring 30 people. Just so we are
clear, it's too expensive for us to open the doors withmuch less than 100 people.
If you would like to know more about what you should think about before inquiring about booking at RKRL, I'm
going to have to refer you to the Bottom of the Hill's website, they have really summed it up.
If you're a bigger band that wants a place to play an intimate show in SF, please hit me up. Regardless of genre, I
probably have a couple of bands that would fill out a bill.
If you're a smaller touring band coming through SF, perhaps I can throw you on a bill. You can get some gas money
and we can all be stoked about furthering underground music.
