Since June 2003, Holocene has hosted a range of acts and events, from folk, indie rock and left-field electronic bands, to sweaty rap dance parties and minigolf-art invitationals. Generally we host live music Wednesdays and Thursdays (some Sundays through Tuesdays), and DJ dance parties on Fridays and Saturdays. We may not be the best venue for your grind-core or death metal band or your Green Day cover band, but short of that, we're extremely excited about keeping the space fresh with new musical talent from near and far. We'd love to hear from you -- just have a peek at the FAQs below before you write to us!
