Schedule your show or event at Flask
*Age is ALWAYS 21+
*Flask Books All Genres of Music * We Love Music *
*Compensation is the same for EVERYONE, no matter what, it’s always 10% of the total sales for the evening as well as drink discounts. Bands can sell cd’s or merchandise, put out a donation/tip bucket.. Anything to make extra money. WE DO NOT CHARGE COVERS – only under special circumstances – WE DO NOT OFFER GUARANTEES!
*Load in time, is anytime after 6:30pm.. Typically bands start around 8-9pm and will be over by midnight or even earlier (except on the weekends). We respect our neighbors!
*We do not have parking dedicated to Flask, however there is a city owned lot directly across the street and plenty of off street parking nearby, as well as Spring Street Parking Garage.
*We do have a PA, but require bands to bring their own mics, mic stands and cables (ours tend to disappear). We do ask that bands DO NOT bring any unnecessary equipment.. Flask is a small, brick box, (capacity of 100) so no need to try and be extra loud.. Otherwise it will scare people out the door. Please be respectful of sound levels and our equipment.
*It’s very important for bands to promote their shows, as Flask doesn’t typically have a built in crowd for non-local bands. It is the touring bands responsibility to research local act(s) to share the night with. We will provide you with resources in order to do so. We want bands to make money as much as bands want to make money. We will help promote the show as best we can via website, facebook, twitter, local newspaper/entertainment magazines, etc.
*Please BE VERY SPECIFIC when requesting a date to book. IF we do not respond, most likely the date requested has already been booked, not because we don’t like your music!
*If you are looking to get rich! Flask is not your venue! We are a fun & friendly venue for touring bands to network themselves in the Portland, Maine area.
We looking forward to booking your show!
