Location and Parking Info:
Hole in The Wall 2538 Guadalupe, Austin, TX
Given that it's UT's spring break, parking should be plentiful, but likely not free. The metered parking behind the venue is fairly cheap.
- Backline: Each stage should have at least one guitar amp, one bass amp, and one drum kit. Drummers, bring snare, cymbals, bass pedal. Guitarists bring guitars, etc.
- Load-in: Please arrive whenever you'd like, this year, we will have a equipment area on the patio, as to not clog up the stage rooms. Bands can bring equipment in, 45 minutes before their set.
- The Front Stage has a small PA that has board near the stage that can be controlled by the band. Super simple setup, HITW sound guy can help configure.
- The Patio Stage will be using the Chicken Ranch PA, (allen + heath mixer, Mackie speakers). It's in the back building at rear of venue with bar/burger place.
- Is There Hospitality?: Yes, bands will be given drink tickets and we will have pizza on hand or some other type of food. We can order a non-dairy/soy cheese pizza for our vegan friends. There's a great vegan food truck (Arlos) three blocks away.
