Hey this is Jason here at the Exit/In - We are looking for local bands to play our "Rock the Block" series. If you are a local band interested in playing a show that has a low cover (i.e. $3) with a good drink special on Miller's ($2-$3) you most likely won't get much money from the gig but it will get you a show at the Exit/In. If you are interested please contact Jason by email at jexitin at hotmail.com. We're looking for bands that can bring an audience of 18+ but mostly ones that are old enough to drink to take advantage of the great drink specials we'll be offering. Please do NOT contact us via Myspace, as you will just be directed to the above email address.
Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!

Your illegal Mexican groundskeepers don't count, snowman69.
I know people in their 70s who are day laborers and on their feet all…
in Burdon's defense, touring can be a bit rougher when you're 72. Charles "Wigg" Walker…
Touring is hard work. NOT!!
