***Free music July***
In conjunction with Stagehand and The City Of Calgary, Gravity is hosting free music weekends throughout the month of July. The intent is two fold:
1 - To be able to pay an act/artist for their performance.
2 - Free entry to the broader public to culturally enhance exposure to live music.
We have 8 spots available and each act will be paid $100 and be able to collect gratuities from the audience through the Stagehand tipping function. All funds will be paid through Stagehand after the conclusion of the event.
Tuesday and Wednesday matinee emerging artist nights:
These matinee slots are perfect for emerging artists that want to get over first performance jitters, or would like a relaxed environment to get comfortable on stage. Entry to the audience is free and a tip bucket will be provided, artists appreciate your generosity. Shows generally run from 5.30pm to 7pm.
Singer/Songwriter night. An evening of relaxed and unscripted music. Gravity’s hosts invite local musicians to perform original songs and covers. Entry to the audience is free and a tip bucket will be provided, artists appreciate your generosity. Shows generally run from 7pm to 9pm.
Friday and Saturday showcase nights:
These are our showcase nights that we reserve for established artists that can draw an audience. Preference is given to duos, trios and bands as opposed to singer/songwriters. Entry to the audience is by a cover charge determined by the artist. It is always a good idea to make a reservation for showcase nights. Shows generally run from 7pm to 9pm.
