Actual performance space bookings

90's-themed 28th birthday party

I'm inquiring about this booking for my younger sister. I am hosting a 28th birthday party for her on the 11th. I absolutely love the look of this space! The art in the main room would go perfect with our 90's theme. I have a local artist performing so the stage is a plus as well.

acoustic performance music video

I'm an aspiring filmmaker working on a music video project in need of a venue to work in. It's a simple acoustic performance with a guitarist and vocalist that will have other film material overlaid. Both the film material and musical performance will be filmed in the space, as it coincides with some of the different themes we hope to achieve. The director and musician would like to rent the space for a couple of hours for initial scouting. We would like to take measurements, explore the space, and work on visualizing our project with your venue, so we can eventually rent it in the near future for the actual filming. It should just be the three of us (a possible fourth, the guitarist, might join us for a quick rehearsal).

spoken word video shoot

I'm obsessed with your space! I will be shooting a 2 minute spoken word piece and I doubt we will even need the full 3 hours. I'll have a super small crew (1 talent, 1 camera guy, and 1 sound guy) and we won't be bringing any props or anything like that. We're just looking to shoot in front of large glass windows.
