Yes but you must email us in advance and your group must be larger then 10 people, and all door entry must be purchased at once. Discounts are not available for ticketed shows.

Our preferred method for booking is through email. Please specify date, expected draw, type of event, list of performers. Please see guideline and rates below.
I'm in a band, how can we book a show?
First you'll need to work out a show proposal and an expected timeline for your event.
Once you have a date on hold with us, you are expected to put together a bill for the show. You are the promoter, not the venue, not the booker, you! 90% of promotion should be dealt with by the promoter.
Your bill is approved based on viability and/or expected draw. If the Copper Owl approaches you about a show, then we are the promoters.
The venue automatically charges a room fee for music shows. It's $200. It usually comes out of the door except on Sun - Wed. Those nights the $200 is due at load in. The fees are used to pay our sound tech and door persons.
We are up front about our room fees so that there are no surprises at the end of the gig for the bands/performers. We will give you a room check list detailing all the money coming in from the door, guest lists, and how many patrons paid upon entry at the end of the night.
Please book with all of this in mind and remember, you are the promoter. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
