John Hernandez Need a Date or Two in NYC Aug 06 (11) RE: Need a Date or Two in NYC Aug 06 17 Mar 06


Jed, there are lots of venues in New York City. Most do their bookings two or three months in advance. Unless you are a big name, they usually give you just a one-hour set and a share of the gate (cover) from people who say they are coming to hear you. Typically, these places have three to five acts an evening, each doing a single hour, which means you have to bring in your own audience. If someone comes and pays $5 or $10 to hear Joe Shmoe and then stays to hear you, Joe Shmoe gets the money and you don't. If that doesn't bother you, here are some places to contact:

C-Note: 212-677-8142

Baggot Inn: 212-477-0622

CB's 313 Gallery: 212-677-0455

Orange Bear: 212-566-3705

Sidewalk Cafe: 212-473-7373

Triad Lounge: 212-362-2590

169 Bar: 212-437-8866
