About
Gravity books 5 nights of music per week in the following format: Tuesday and Wednesday nights: Open to emerging artists that want to try a relaxed and intimate venue to get comfortable performing in front of an audience. Or, for local and touring artists that don’t have a built in following. An opportunity to discover some great new talent in an intimate setting. Entry to the audience is free and a tip bucket will be provided and artists appreciate your generosity. Thursday nights: 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 and artists appreciate your generosity. 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. Check our upcoming events in Stagehand and sign up for our weekly newsletter at www.cafegravity.com for more information.
