Guide to bands doing shows at Woodchucks Generally Doors are at 9pm,Show begin at 10PM Bands are notified of their position in the lineup in advance.The order is decided at the promoters discretion, and is generally decided to benefit the touring acts. Shows are generally no more than 3 bands.Again this is at the discretion of the promoter and may be added to for special events Bands playing first can load in directly to the stage,please make an effort to hook up everything you can before your sound check. Later acts we have limited storage at the back and front of the bar, you can store your equipment inside the bar till show time. Support acts are generally asked to perform 30 to 40 minuets.Do not waste your stage time going out for smokes,taking a leak etc....Any attempt to go over your allot-ed time with out a go -ahead from the sound man acting on behalf of the promoter will be met with stiff resistance and you will be shut down. This is rude to the other bands playing with you and unless you packed the bar with 200 of your fans it will not be tolerated. Bands playing the ending time slot get virtually unlimited time to perform,with in limits of closing time of course. This is a benefit to playing the later slot.
