Outsound Presents is an artist-run/grass-roots DIY effort. It is not currently a funded series for experimental music. We book 2 to 3 months in advance. There is no guaranteed payment, no guest passes, hotel accomodations, transportation, no acoustic piano, no sound person. Must start by 8:10pm. However, we do offer a space to play (2 groups per evening), free advertising, and a percentage from the door: 70% goes to the musicians (divided equally by 2 sets) and 30% goes to the gallery. We ask audience to contribute $6-15 in support of the artists. There a limited PA available (mixer, two speakers, no reference monitors) Setup begins at 7pm. Realistically, very little money is made and we volunteer our time. We are also happy to have volunteer help with the series (setup chairs, curtain, lights, or make/distribute flyers etc.) please contact us.
