Maybe, but don’t ask us. The Bowery Presents doesn’t issue press passes or photo passes. All press inquiries should be directed to the band’s publicist, label or management.
Maybe, but what are you going to do for us? Relationships are a two-way street. We are always in search of street-teamers and folks to flyer. Got something to offer? Hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Photo policy varies for different artists and is usually not determined until day of show. You can bring a nonprofessional camera to most shows, and you can inquire about the photo policy at the door or email email@example.com on the day of show.
The vast majority of the acts that play here select their own support acts and bring them on tour with them. We rarely have the opportunity to add other bands to the bill. But feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with information about your band (links to music, press clips, where else they’ve played in Boston, etc) because you never know!
Yes! Just email email@example.com and someone will get back to you promptly.
