Feel free to send demos (streaming only) but please be advised that there is no way that we can respond to each one. We love hearing them, though!

Beacon Sound only presents shows occasionally. Most of the events we host --usually no more than 3-6 per month-- are organized internally through friends or for established touring artists looking for an intimate venue, primarily due to the constraints of time and energy. Don't hesitate to get in touch, though, if you have a proposal for something that you really think should happen here.

** We'll be taking a break from hosting shows this summer (approximately mid-June to the end of October).
