How can my band play The Pyramid Scheme?

Please see our booking page.



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 disability. Can I reserve seats/spot?

Absolutely. Specialty seating is available upon request via or Please contact us at least a day before hand 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 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 without paying service charges?

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

Can I put my ticket under a different name at Will Call so my friend can use it?
