Safe Space Policy
While I won’t be censoring acts, I do ask that you please read the room! It is a Sunday afternoon show so I want to try not to alienate my audience. For example I don’t think people will be ready for the C-bomb.
There is no obligation to promote the event on social media, and your respective platforms. However, it is encouraged and genuinely appreciated if you can do your best to build some momentum for the night.
-The headline act will be paid.
-All acts are offered a free drink.
