Unfortunately there were a few sunday nite punk shows where the bands got little to no money. That has been changed and things should continue to get better if people continue to show up. We've been working with the owner to not only continue paying a guarentee but also paying more when the bands bring in good crowds.
I will say on Mr. Roberts behalf that bands are generally treated well at the bar, not insulted with one or two free drink tix like some places...
In addition to sunday nites, bands like El Donk, The Blueheels, Supa Ranks, Trinity James, Clovis Mann, Vibe Syndicate, and many other non-jam bands have had successful weekend shows and many continue to book more dates.
It is what it is. A little dive bar that has bands play. Without a stage or advertising I don't think I would ever call it a venue. No one is getting rich playing there, but it's a great location, and a pretty good walk in crowd no matter what band is playing.
