IMPORTANT!
1. Please read everything so you know how it works.
2. Fill in the form below.
3. Sit tight and we’ll get back to as soon as possible if we can confirm a show at your place.

A few things we want you to know about…

1. LOCATION
In the past we’ve booked all kinds of spaces. It can be residential, commercial, community, or any other space where you can host a private gathering. Bonus points for being centrally located! The space should comfortably and safely hold a minimum of 25 people. Show us what you got!

There needs to be street parking, a parking garage, or public transportation nearby so guests can access your space easily. Before you offer to host a show, please check with your neighbors to confirm they’re ok with a bunch of extra people coming over. It would be a huge bummer if someone called the cops because of all the extra cars and people.

2. CAPACITY
Be realistic. This is the number of tickets we put on sale. Please keep in mind when determining your capacity, you get five free tickets for friends that won’t be included in the ticketed capacity. The capacity you tell us will be the number of tickets we put on sale. EXAMPLE: If we sell 50 tickets and you invite 5 guests, there will be 55 people at the show.

3. TICKET PRICE
Tickets are $20. Everyone must buy tickets in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door. There will be no reselling or third-party tickets sales. All tickets sales are direct to fans from Undertow. Limit 4 tickets per person. These shows usually sell out quickly and we want everyone to have a fair opportunity to buy tickets.

4. GUEST LIST
We’ll provide the host with a list of everyone coming to the show. The host won’t have to deal with any money and will only need to check people off the list as they arrive. We ask guests to arrive between 7:15-7:45pm. The shows start at 8pm and we ask everyone to be out of your space within 30 minutes after the show has ended. That’s usually no later than 10pm.

5. FREE TICKETS FOR HOSTS
The host gets 5 additional free tickets for the show. If you have other friends beyond your 5 guests who want to come to the show you should direct them buy tickets online. These guests will also need to bring a completed vaccine card to attend the show.

6. PROMOTING THE SHOW
Shows will promoted through Undertow’s websites, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and by word-of-mouth. We’ll create individual Facebook events for each show and make you the event admin so you can easily invite friends and community members. We’d appreciate your help to spread the word on your Facebook and Instagram, too.  Please don’t post your address. The address only goes to people after they buy tickets.

Home addresses will not be published on the web and will only be given to those who purchase tickets. In addition to respecting your privacy, we need to keep the show locations private so random folks don’t show up and party-crash.

7. SOUND SYSTEM & LIGHTING
You don’t need a sound system. Mike will bring along a small amp so he will need access to an electrical outlet or power strip.

You don’t need any special lighting. But it would be great if you had some kind of ambient lighting like a lamp on coffee table, floor lamp, or overhead lights with a dimmer to help create a cozy mood.

8. SEATING
You don’t need seating for everyone. If you have a bunch of chairs, great! But most shows are floor seating and we let guests know they should bring folding chair, cushion, or pillow to sit on during the show.

9. OPENING ARTISTS
We don’t have openers at these shows. It’s much easier for us to keep things simple and stay on schedule if it’s just one artist playing. We’re also trying to keep the amount of time guests are in your space to a minimum.

10. FRIENDLY PETS
We love cats and dogs, we really do! But an excitable pet running around during the show can be distracting for the guests and performers. If you have curious and friendly 4-legged family members, would you be ok with putting them in another part of the house, or sending them to a friend’s house, during the show?

If all that sounds ok,
PLEASE FILL IN ALL FIELDS BELOW

Please fill in the name of the artist you'd like to host. If this is a general submission, you can fill in "Anyone" or leave it blank.
How many people do you think you can host? Keep in mind when determining your capacity, you get five free tickets for friends that won't be included in the ticketed capacity. The capacity you tell us will be the number of tickets we put on sale. For EXAMPLE: If we sell 50 tickets and you invite 5 guests, there will be 55 people at the show.
ADA Accessibility
Your space does not have to be ADA accessible to host, however it is a major bonus. If your space isn't fully ADA accessible, please let us know about the entrance (front door, back door, steps, handrails, etc).
If you are renting your home or space, do you have permission from your landlord to host this show?
Do you have permission from everyone who lives in your home or works at the space to host this show?
Everyone attending the show will be required to wear a mask over their nose and mouth while indoors AND when interacting with the artist. Do you consent to this?
It's totally fine if you don't want guests to bring alcohol. We realize that with COVID concerns and/or zoning restrictions, that consuming may not be ideal for your situation. We're happy to pass on those parameters to guests. If you're OK with guests bringing beverages, this is what we usually tell them: "The host is allowing attendees to bring a few beers or a bottle of wine to enjoy during the show. Remember that this is a low-key intimate acoustic performance, not a party. Please stay masked inbetween drinks and take all trash with you when you leave."
