TO BOOK A BAND AT DOUBLE DOWN - Simply e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include a Reverbnation, Bandcamp or other DIRECT link to your music, we need to hear something from you before we consider booking. You can also drop off or send us a CD or promo pack to the address at left, but be sure to include your e-mail address, as ALL correspondence is handled by e-mail.
WE BOOK MOSTLY PUNK & GARAGE BANDS. Sometimes rockabilly, rawk, psychobilly, surf, lo-fi and certain other styles we find interestingly off-center. But please DO NOT SEND US anything acoustic. No singer-songwriters. No country. NO EMO, SCREAMO, METAL, TECHNO, ELECTRONICA, GOTHIC, INDUSTRIAL, HIP HOP, REGGAE, WORLD BEAT or JAM BANDS. And a tip for rock bands, please understand that there is a world of difference between rock and punk.
ALL BAND MEMBERS MUST BE 21 OR OLDER and have a valid photo ID. If you do not, you will not be allowed to play when you arrive. The law is very strict here, and there are NO exceptions.
WE GET HUNDREDS OF LINKS AND CDs every month from bands who want to play, and we listen to them all and reply to every inquiry. But please understand that although your band may be very good, that does not mean that it is a good fit for our venue.
WE ARE NOT A CLUB, but a small bar that does not sell tickets or charge a cover. So the most we can offer bands is a little cash, some drinks and a chance to sell merchandise (good bands do very well here selling merch). If your band wants a bigger payday, we totally understand and wish you well elsewhere.
WE WILL NOT BOOK A BAND that is playing at another Las Vegas venue the same week. We know you need gas money, but the Las Vegas scene is very small and double booking is not fair to either venue.
BANDS WITH MIDGETS get extra consideration.
CORRESPONDENCE IS DONE BY E-MAIL ONLY.
