"...Host was very responsive. Great space. We were shooting video interviews and unfortunately a music performance started to play in the area which spoiled our audio quality. I emailed the space owner and was immediately reconciled with clear communication. I hope to book again..."

Actual performance venue bookings

music recital space

I am a private music teacher (cello/violin) looking for a recital space. I saw yours and it looks perfect for my studio size.

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).

dance music video shoot

I'm hoping to film a very short scene ("dance rehearsal" scene) in a video project I'm working on (I'm a drag performer). Do you perhaps have availability in your space this Sunday? The shoot will be very low-impact: four people, handheld camera, easy-peasy
