Open Sets

Fat Baby and The Charleston have just begun booking Winter shows and have many open sets right now! Read below for more information.

Fat Baby is giving priority to bands/bookers/promoters who can bring in a full line up of at least 3-5 bands. If you have trouble inviting other bands let them know so they can help out.

Open Dates:
  • January – 23, 24, 30, 31
  • February – 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28
  • March – 1, 2, 3, 6 -10, 13-17 (17th is St. Patricks Day so must be appropriate to the holiday) , 20-24, 27-31
There are many open dates for April and on so please just get in touch if you want to plan that far ahead.  There are open weekend nights but priority is given to bands/bookers/promoters who have booked with us before and proved to bring in a good draw.  If you feel like you can do the same get in touch and we can discuss.
BACKLINE: We have a house drum set but you need to bring your own snare, kick pedal, clutch and cymbals.  We do not have any house amps but they are coming soon.  We have 4 mics and stands, XLR cables (no 1/4 inch), monitors, PA, 2 DI boxes and we provide the sound engineer.



We would like bands and promoters to be able to come to us with a full line up of at least 3 bands.  If you need help let Volkan Eryaman know and he can contact other bands. Below is some information that provides you with an incentive to set up full line ups on your own.

Cover charge at our shows are normally $7 but this is really up to you.  We take the first $70 made at the door per band/1 hour set.  If you book at least 3 bands altogether then we will lower this to $50 per set.  You keep all other profits.  We ask that you don’t put more then 1 out of town band on the bill unless you are absolutely confident that they can help bring in a draw.  We also ask that each band be able to bring in at least 10 people.  If this might be a problem let Volkan Eryaman  know in advance so maybe you can work something out.

We also want to accommodate out of town bands as much as possible so all out of town bands that can fill up a bill with other LOCAL NYC bands will have their overhead cost waived and can keep 100% of their door sales. Its not hard to find other NYC bands, you just have to do some research.  You can even go to the fat baby myspace and search through the bands that are friends with us, and then search their friends as well.  This is a great way to easily fill up a bill.  Find one band you like and ask other bands on their top friends list if they would like to join.  Please DON’T send any requests to our MySpace page because we don’t check those messages.
