My friend and I just started a band, how can I get us a show booked at Boot & Saddle ?
The best way to get a show at Boot & Saddle is to send your information and links to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you tell me exactly what time every band will take the stage, how long they will play for and what time the show will end? I am a crazy person who needs to know well in advance what I’m doing with every second of my life.
In short, not really. For those of you who have never been to a live music event, here are some pretty good Life Pro Tips for estimating times from your pals here at B&S, seasoned show veterans: We always list the door time (i.e. when we’ll open the front door) and start time (i.e. when the first band will start playing) on our website and on your ticket itself. The length of an artist’s set length can vary. On average (again, this is an average) each opening band is allotted 30 minutes. Look at the show listing on this website to determine how many bands are playing the show (we promise, we list all the bands, in correct order on our website, Facebook, etc.), and using the preceding information, you should be able to estimate about what time each band is playing. The band on top of the website listing will be the band playing last. Please keep in mind that our professional team of engineers does its best to keep all shows running on time, but every once and a while a show runs late. Don’t get upset. Enjoy yourself!
Do you serve alcohol / food?
You betcha! Check our MENU PAGE to see our full menu. There is a seasonal rotating menu with vegetarian and vegan options available as well as ten craft draft beers and a selection of craft cans. There are also plenty of non alcoholic options as well!
I have a blog. Do I count as “Press”?
Maybe, but don’t ask us. Boot & Saddle doesn’t issue press passes or photo passes. All press inquires should be directed to the band’s publicist, label or management.
Can I get in for free?
Maybe, but what are you going to do for us? Relationships are a two-way street. We are always in search of street-teamers and folks to flyer. We can also offer you free admission if you were on any of the Phillies, 76ers, Flyers, or Eagles championship rosters.
Can you give me the contact of someone at the label?
Unfortunately, we cannot give out that information, but Google and liner notes can probably help. You’ll be surprised what you can find on the Internet.
Can I bring my camera?
Unless an artist requests otherwise, regular digital point & shoot cameras and smartphones are generally fine but absolutely no SLR, detachable lens, or professional type cameras or video recording devices are allowed without prior permission from the venue and band. Keep in mind that even if cameras are permitted, NO FLASHES ARE ALLOWED. Oh yeah, if you are good at taking pictures, please send us copies! We like that lots!
Do you have a coat check?
During colder weather, there is a coat check available next to the venue entrance from Door Time until Midnight. The cost is $2.
Puis-je fumer dans le club?
Sorry, there is no smoking at Boot & Saddle (this means you too, vapers). However, there is a space outside the front door where you can do so if you so please.
Is there re-entry?
If you have the proper stamp / wristband from the venue. We will allow you to travel back and forth between the rooms.
Where do I park?
There’s lots of street parking (often free) along Broad Street, and on many of the side streets, in the lovely neighborhood around the Boot. We do offer a friendly reminder to take note of all posted signs; on occasion, a car has been known to be towed, although seemingly never the cars that park right in the middle of Broad Street. South Philly is the best!
Do you rent your rooms for private events?
Of course! Nuestra casa es su casa. We like to party. Please visit HERE for more information.
