Atlas Booking is a fairly new booking agency, founded in 2016, looking to help bands and artists book local shows based out of Cinnaminson, NJ. Consisting of Tom Hale, Andrew Worelle, and Kevin Dunne, this booking trio recently teamed up with Grandaire Booking, making them the newest addition to the Grandaire team, helping South Jersey show after show. This show will be one of their first official shows as “Atlas Booking” in 2017, and it will be held at one of South Jersey’s most well known local venues: Studio Luloo.
Atlas back, back again, tell a muh fuh kin friend. Atlas Booking is really excited to announce their first show of 2017, and you bet your ass we’re gonna bump “Poppin’ Champagne” by All Time Low the entire show. Yo, it’s all ages though, so pop sparkling cider like a respectable human being. The gig is on Saturday, April 8th, 2017, and doors are at 6:00pm. There’s only 5 bands so make sure you get there early -- it’s a stacked show with some of the best bands (and the best people) in the tri-state area. They’re making moves and you don’t want to miss this show. Luloo kind of looks like your little sister's bedroom, so you can basically say “Oh, I saw *insert band name here* in this bedroom lookin' ass venue before they got big.” *insert nail emoji* - Basically if you go, you’re getting hella punk cred like you got pepper sprayed at a Trump rally. My friend Tim had that happen to him, and he has also has gotten robbed; so I feel like those two combined give him a lot of punk cred. Be like Tim. Get that punk cred, brother.
I mean, Drake wants you to come. Like damn, look how strangely happy Drake is for you to get to this gig. Of all people to disappoint, it shouldn’t be Drake. Drake doesn't like disappointment, he likes Happiness.
“Pizza shop (with some really good cheap pizza) connected to the venue and coffee shop across the street (just incase you get hungry).
Park in the parking lot a little past the venue if you can't find a spot on the street. Bands: try to be at the venue at least 30 minutes before playing so set times don't get pushed back.
Tell your friends.
No drinking/drugs/fighting. Have a good time.
Definitely go to that pizza shop. They’re so cheap and so good. They also have a deal for a slice and a can of soda for $2, so get there before the first band, and use that extra 2 dollars you’d be spending if you came after the first band. It’s like free pizza and drank.
1. Respect the Venue.
2. Respect the People.
3. Come early, Stay late
$5 before the first band, $7 after. Get there early, use that $2 for the $2 pizza deal, stay late, party hard.
