Promotion

Promotional Info

By agreeing to perform, we ask that you promote this show to your fullest capability:

  • If possible, please make sure the venue has 4 posters/flyers for inside the venue. You can mail them to the venue.
  • Our promoter makes a flyer for every show using our Local 506 flyer template. If you would like to make your own flyer, please make sure you include all information about the show and send a PDF version to sarah@local506.com.
  • Please alert press, radio and blogs to your upcoming show. Below is a list of local outlets.
  • We create Facebook events for all of our shows. It works best if both the band and the venue to utilize the same FB event (instead of doubling-up our efforts) as we also often link to these events in our advertising.
  • Out of respect for other venues, we also request that acts not play another show in Chapel Hill/Carrboro two weeks before or after a show here.

For any other questions or to send along promo, please e-mail sarah@local506.com.
