General information

Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays are open to anyone.

Fridays and Saturdays have less available dates and expectation to bring a crowd of at least 30 people.

Gigs typically run between 7-10pm. Both stages have a full backline so you can simply bring your instruments, plug in and play.

Downstairs Stage

The main stage downstairs can fit 50 people in the prime viewing area plus another 30 in the hallway and patio. This room is ideal for acoustic, folk, indie, jazz acts, or even stand-up comedy.

Payment is a minimum of $40 for 1 x 45-minute set, and there will be at least 2 sets per night. The venue will award bonuses for busy nights which can potentially make the payment $100 or more.

For louder acts (i.e. punk, rock & roll), see the upstairs stage.

Upstairs Stage

The band room upstairs is suitable for all heavy-hitting bands. Whether it be psych, punk, funk, or rock and roll, the fun happens up here!

There is no hire fee for the room itself. A $50 payment to the venue will give us an audio engineer for the night. However, you are welcome to bring someone to work the sound if that is preferable.

The Note Network can handle the online ticketing, provide a door person, and design a simple poster. Door split is 15% to The Note Network and 85% to the artists. Percentages are calculated after the $50 is paid.

Typically there are 2 bands each playing 45-minute sets at 8pm and 9pm. Capacity allows for 30 punters. For a sold-out show with tickets in the $10-15 price range, each band should expect to make $100-170.
