i help run an all ages venue in north park ive been thinking of trying to get a surf show together there but i don't know if all ages venues are attractive to the surf scene so i thought i would test the waters

some basic info

no drugs or booze
we are run as a community service and never charge admission but we pass a donation bucket around for traveling bands.
we open at 7 start music at 8 and try to have everything done by 11
we have a capacity of around 150 people

I love the time slots,
Good luck,
I am almost 40, and this bizness of starting shows at 10 pm,
and getting over at 1:30 is for the birds.

There is an all ages club around the corner from me.
Tons of kids there all the time.
shows are usually 7 to 10 or 11 at the latest.
that's if they have 5 or 6 bands.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

dang 5-6 bands, they must run a really tight ship, we normally do 3-4

Big Ryan...how well is the donation thing working out for you guys? Kill, Baby...Kill! has had some pretty cruddy luck when trying to do the 'all-ages' venue thing. They have all either had a very convoluted door system that is designed to steal from the bands or they promise to take up donations but never take the initiative to make it happen on a proper scale.

Hi Big Ryan,

We, The Secret Samurai would LOVE to do an all-ages venue! We definitely have some younger fans who want to see us, but all-ages venues are hard to come by. Is it the Queen Bee?

Also, with enough notice, I figure I could get a lot of kids to show up being that I'm a high school teacher and they are always asking when they can come see us. A few have come to the Del Mar Fair or various street fairs, but other than that, we mostly play bars so they can never come.

But to sum up...yeah, we're very interested!

-Steve

the donation bucket has been really successful and really unsuccessful, i think it really depends on the crowd and how well the band initiates it, people are generally really supportive of bands that are on the road.
We never ever charge at the door so theres no money to made there but the good news in that is that means the audience has more money in their pocket for merch, we run as a community service and never take any percentage of any money so if you have good merch sales and or good donation all that money is yours to keep

Wow! I just drove by there. Walking distance from my place. I should have known that Ryan would be on top of it.

Hopefully, this will work. Thanks!

Wait 'til you're 60! Sigh
One of the main reasons I don't get out to see many bands.
If you can get Secret Samurai, that would be great. I'll be there if I don't have a gig.
