Can you come and watch? Yes! Having people in the room is good and welcome. Our main purpose is to get good recordings of the performers and presenters — the complete opposite from bars and clubs. If you actually like paying attention to the performers and presenters without annoying-drunk-person hollering about who-knows-what behind you, this is like heaven… if heaven happens to be an intimate, slightly reverberant, good-sounding live room with a casual, industrial vibe. If you’re looking for a bar scene (and it’s totally fine if you are), we recommend checking out the local bars.
Admission is by donation, usually a suggested $5 minimum. We typically have bad snacks and sodas available too, also by donation.
Seating is limited to 40 pretty nice folding chairs — first come, first served. After that there’s standing room. It’s OK to bring your own chair just in case, as long as you take it back home with you when you leave.
The listening event / recording sessions usually aren’t a good environment for ADHD youngsters or disruptive adults. Cell phones off, pop a lozenge if you’ve got a cough, no talking or clinking during performance. Applaud like crazy, cheer a great solo, laugh heartily at a good joke. Honor the stage.
