Interested in performing at Turn! Turn! Turn!?

Please read before you write:

T3 is a small space with no green room and limited capacity (~80). We have an 11:00pm noise curfew for events (no exceptions). Evening shows generally start between 8:00 and 9:00pm. We welcome daytime/happy hour shows too, and Turn is all ages until 8pm. We do not provide band guarantees or offers. We do not do ticket pre-sales. Bands are given 100% of the door money, minus $50 for our door person. We do not cater to band riders but do our best to help everyone get what they need!

Our approach is DIY, this includes You! We ask bands to put together their own bills, though we’re glad to make suggestions. We welcome submissions from artists simply looking to be added to bills and will do our best to place you if we are able, but presenting a solid bill is the way to our hearts.

If you’re hoping to book a weekend night, know that we shoot for 40+ in attendance. Less pressure on weeknights. We ask that bands do not have other local shows within a month of their show with us unless they can guarantee an audience.

Please consider, Turn! is more an event space and less a bar. We do not have a built in audience, people come to see you! If you are unable to draw your folks out, it will likely effect our decision to work with you in the future. No offense, but we gotta pay the rent!

Not just another show… We seek to be activists in our field by using our venue as an inclusive, safe space. Our vision is to bring more consciousness to gender and race equality represented on stage. We ask that you consider this as you are building your bill.

We also encourage getting weird with your event! It doesn’t have to be all bands. Throw in a dance performance / short film / one act play. Diverge from the norm!

Sound good? Great! Now, please check the calendar to see if the date you want is available. Then, send an email to turnturnturnpdx.booking@gmail.com that includes the following:

  • Name of band/artist
  • Links to music, press, etc. (Bandcamp/Soundcloud preference, no Spotify please!)
  • Date or range of dates you hope to play
  • Portland artists you’d like to share your bill with
  • Any other pertinent info.

Thank you and look forward to working with you!
