Local Bands!

If you are a local band who is interested in opening for regional and national acts, please send your press kit to Jessica Gordon  at thetriggersystem@gmai.com. We keep an updated list of local acts, and we will let you know when we can get you an opening slot on a show! If you see a show that interests you to open, feel free to email us to inquire. We work hard to get local slots added to our shows; however, please keep in mind that many national and regional acts won’t allow local support.
