Booked by Grandma
We book shows that primarily focus on bands made up of non-straight cis white men. We like punk, indie rock, pop, synth, shoegaze & acoustic acts. We try to stay DIY whenever we can but are comfortable working with venues as big as The Knitting Factory. bookedbygrandma [at] gmail [dot] com

Cafe Beit
We do small acoustic shows that are on the quiet side Thursdays-Saturdays. Shows are also on the early side 6-9pm. We have a small PA system. The space is good for singer/songwriters. For consideration please send us your music & date(s) you are looking to perform. We can provide a tip bucket & a free drink to each performer. Contact: events.cafebeit [at] gmail [dot] com

For It! Records
We organize charity benefits & compliation albums for local and national charities, as well as maintain relationships with local venues & loft spaces to host lesser known bands. Brooklyn can be hard to navigate & we want to keep it as non-commercial as possible. Anyway, we're happy to help place touring bands at the venues we work with, namely Bushwick Public House, Don Pedro's & occasionally Brooklyn Bazaar & Shea Stadium. foritrecords [at] gmail [dot] com

We relocated from Philadelphia, PA in late 2016 after 7 strong years bringing the niche community together. We have our own full a/v system & host shows anywhere from studios, galleries to houses & outdoor festivals, but anywhere all ages really.

New York

21 Grams
I'm a DIY photographer in the NYC area. I'm open to any & all projects, but I generally photograph live shows. If you need band photos or whatever, I'm here 4 u. I'm also currently working on a documentary & I'd love for anyone who's willing to be in it. There's a huge disconnect between creator & audience, where all the focus is placed on the finished product, & none on the process. I want to shift the focus back to the process. But it obviously can't just be my side of things, that's just one story out of thousands. So I need other stories - your story. Get in touch with me if you're interested! lena [at] 21grams [dot] net or 6four6 5eight0 nine812.

Matthew Hall
I book shows up here in very far upstate NY, we are a short drive from Montreal & Burlington, VT, & about two hours from Albany, NY. I can't always help out, but I will do what I can & send you contacts for other folks in the region if I can't set you up myself. I can occasionally do paid gigs at a local bar (performers can be any age, but the shows are 21+). I also am able to do apartment shows from time to time. Unfortunately, I can only do apartment shows for acts that don't use a drum kit. I'm always able to provide some gas money, a meal, & a clean & private place to crash after a gig. mhall12901 [at] gmail [dot] com

LRS records
Local indie label. We primarily focus on helping bands from around CNY put out their music on vinyl / cassettes / cd / hit-clips / whatever. With that being said, we always love to help touring bands out as much as we can. We won't be able to make every show work, but it's worth a shot to give us a shout. Most shows will be pretty mixed since Syracuse doesn't really have very segregated scenes. Your metal band may play with a ska band. But that'd be fun, right? streets [at] lrsrecords [dot] com
