Howler’s Coyote Cafe, presented by RF Entertainment, is located in the ‘Little Italy’ section of Pittsburgh, PA, and is quickly becoming one of the area’s hot spots for live music. With a capacity of 150-200, this two-room venue has been in operation for over 10 years and caters mainly to Rock, Acoustic and Country acts. Mostly booking shows on weekends, Howler’s also offers its stage on weeknights for touring bands that are between gigs.

Shows are usually booked around two months in advance, however, when artists are local, bookings may occur sooner. As with most clubs in the Pittsburgh area, there isn’t a large ‘built-in’ crowd. Therefore, it’s up to the artists, both local and touring, to promote their own shows. Posters, flyers, and demo CDs should be mailed to RF Entertainment for placement in the venue, local businesses and neighborhood bulletin boards. If selected, artists will be provided with a list of local media resources (news publications, radio stations, etc.) where they can promote the show. Local bands will pre-sell tickets for the shows while touring bands will split 90% of all door money from walk-up business, and keep 100% of any merchandise sales. Bands will also receive discounted food and drinks.

Typical set length ranges anywhere from 30-90 minutes, depending on the number of acts booked that night. In most cases, artists are responsible for all backline equipment, but there is a modest PA with 12 channels, two main speakers and two monitors. Upgrades are in the works.
