BOSS COLLEGE - Booking and Budgeting
So, you want to put on a show. Where will you put it? How do you get a venue? How do you keep that venue from screwing you? Of you're running a venue, how do you avoid banking on a flop? How much money will it make? Who gets all that money?

I'll teach you how to generate a revenue projection and budget that will show you how much to spend on venue, advertising, tech, and travel; I'll show you around the basic payment models that determine how much money comes to you, and where that money comes from; and I'll teach you all the groovy booking industry jargon that you can use to haggle up a deal that will work best for you. A lot of people, even folks who book lots of shows for their bands or productions, just haven't had an opportunity to encounter this information. Well you've got an opportunity now.

How do I know all this stuff? I've been producing shows in Portland for around 15 years. I worked as the in-house booker for Someday Lounge, Rotture, and Branx. I sat on the board of directors for 2Gyrlz Performative Arts, co-producing the month-long EnterActiveLanguage Festival. I co-created and co-directed Wanderlust Circus, Bogville, Societas Insomnia, 36 Invisibles, and just a whole hell of a lot of other shows; and I've placed those shows at just about every venue in the city. And along the way, I worked a few mid-level office jobs that gave me unique insights into budgeting and project management from companies that measure their success is millions of dollars instead of hundreds. These days, I'm selling out pretty big venues with alarming regularity, and I'm doing it all without spending much of anything up front.

Sounds pretty good? Sign up now.
