This is a special PRODUCTION, where the performers will be invited. The principle performer will receive a ticket to the show, but others in their group or entourage must purchase their tickets separately. The venue is a small, intimate one, and there are no comps or free passes available.

Performers each have an 8-minute slot that includes coming onto the stage, setting up, talking and playing. This time line will be enforced so that the show does not go past 10 pm. As a result, it is imperative that the setup be extremely fast and easy, i.e., performing on the piano or with a single acoustic instrument. Tracks are not allowed except in extreme cases.


If you come onto the stage and spend 8 minutes talking, your time will be up, and you will not be able to perform your music. Please abide by our timeline so that we can present a tight, interesting show for the audience, who are made up largely of your peers.


The whole idea of this show is to present each artist at their most elemental, true selves. That's the beauty of IC showcases and productions. Elaborate setups are simply not possible. But this is exactly what makes these shows so remarkable, unique, and unforgettable.
