How can my band/artist play The Pyramid Scheme?

Please see our booking page.



First & foremost: PLEASE CARPOOL. The Pyramid Scheme’s surrounding area has street parking + the parking ramp at Weston and Commerce can be used. We also have several bike racks in front of the building.



Do I have to pay a cover to get into the Front Bar?

No, never.  Only when there is a show/event in the venue will you be charged a cover at the venue door.



Do you have seating in the venue?

The Pyramid Scheme is a general admission, standing room only venue with a few first-come, first-serve seats. If you prefer to sit, try to arrive when the doors open to snag one.

I can not stand for long and/or have a special need. Can I reserve seats/spot?

Absolutely. Specialty seating is available upon request via nicole@pyramidschemebar.com or jeremy@pyramidschemebar.com. Please contact us at least a day beforehand to reserve seats.

Is the club wheelchair accessible?

Yes. Accessible restrooms are available for you as well.



Can I bring a camera?

It depends on the band but usually you can bring a small camera. Please do not shoot with a flash- it blinds the musicians and, besides, your pictures will look better for it.

Can I bring a professional-grade SLR camera to shoot for my blog/ mag/ zine or to put really great pics up on my Facebook page?

No, not without permission from the band’s mgmt and agents. Please contact nicole@pyramidschemebar.com at least one week before the show to arrange for this.

Can I make an audio recording of my favorite band to make a money off of or to just share with friends in my dad’s basement?




How old do you have to be to enjoy The Pyramid Scheme?

Depends.  The front bar is strictly 21+, please see individual show information for other age restrictions.

What time will the show start and what time will it end?

That depends on the start time and the number of acts on the bill. Usually the first act goes on around 60 minutes after doors open.

Do you have a dress code?

No, we don’t. We just ask that you please wear clothes + shoes (or boots if you please!)



How do I buy tickets online?

Please visit TicketWeb to buy them now!

How do I buy tickets without paying service charges?

Stop in to our front bar during business hours.

Can I buy tickets over the phone from your Box Office?

The Box Office does not take phone orders but you’re able to purchase tickets via Ticketweb toll free at 1.866.468.3399.

Can I put my ticket under a name at Will Call?

We don’t offer a will call option. Tickets are either scanned from your phone, from your physical ticket or from your print at home ticket.



Do you have a bar in the venue?

Yes, we have a full bar that services a wide array of delicious libations.

Do you serve food?

We don’t serve food but can recommend some great spots in the neighborhood for you who will deliver delicious grub to The Pyramid Scheme.



May I rent out the back venue for a private event?

Yes. The Pyramid Scheme is available for almost any use, for any occasion. Rental rates vary depending on the day of the week and time of year, as well as a few other factors. Please contact nicole@pyramidschemebar.com for more information. Please put the words “ROOM RENTAL + YOUR REQUESTED DATE” in the subject line.

May I rent out the front bar for a private event?




Do you have a coat check?

No, and we are not responsible for any lost/stolen items.



Are you hiring?
