    I was wondering if I could book a show at the Public House for September 16th? The band is called Followed By Static and they’re from Austin, TX. I’m not sure who the locals are, but I’ll figure that out soon. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

    We’re in a band called Derp and we are too full of ourselves to read the directions above and email the events coordinator. We’ll just be commenting here, describing our awesome, unique sound and how YOU can call US. How much money do we get?
