IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN BOOKING A SHOW PLEASE READ BELOW. PA'S LOUNGE IS 21+
We recommend that each band check out the club on the night of a show prior to booking in order to see the size and set-up of the room. Band(s) should get equipment into the building between 7:30pm and 8:30pm. Starting time for the shows will be from 8:30pm-9pm (for four act shows) or 9-9:30pm (for three act shows), unless otherwise agreed, and doors will open at 8:30pm. Payment for band(s) is as follows, unless otherwise agreed in advance. Cover charge ranges from $8 to $10. Each act/band is allowed one guest. If a band feels that more guest(s) should not pay, band members should reimburse them themselves.
All equipment including sound at PA's is owned and operated by our personnel. The room cost is $150 ticket money from the door is used to cover PA's facilities and services. The remaining money will be split among the band(s) according to draw. Each band member will receive one drink ticket good for a Free Draft Beer; see the doorman when you arrive to receive a ticket. No drink tickets will be given out prior to meeting with the doorman. Contacting other bands to share drum kits and amps is encouraged and the band's responsibility - but please be considerate and do not delay the show due to late arrivals. There is a designated area next to the stage to stack equipment.
Currently we are listing with the Globe, the Phoenix, the Herald, The Metro and other area papers. Outside promotion is primarily the bands' responsibility. All Posters/Flyers can be sent to the address at the left or dropped off during business hours. PA's website will also carry an up-to-date schedule. If you want to bring in food, we ask that you keep it over on the Bar side. Please remember that this is Somerville and we have a 1:00am liquor license. Last call (&Last Song) is at 12:45am
