The Langdon Street Cafe is a collectively run, worker owned coffeehouse/venue in beautiful Montpelier, Vermont. Performers receive food and are encouraged to collection donations. Some performers may be able to negotiate monetary negotiation if they have a strong local draw./n/nThe Langdon Street Cafe is a collectively run, worker owned coffeehouse/venue at the Corner of Langdon and Elm streets in beautiful Montpelier, Vermont.

They book at least 2-3 months in advance and accept virtually all genres but especially acoustic, singer/songwriter and other coffeehouse style acts. They also book some more hoppin' parties once or twice a month that demand a more dynamic, danceable act. Local draw is not necessary - this is a great place to introduce yourself to the Central Vermont community.

Compensation is generally by crowd donations (which can be quite generous if they like you), but is negotiable for proven quantities or if the cafe feels they can promote the show to the local crowd sufficiently. Also, two beverages and a sandwich from their menu for each performer will be provided at no cost. Some past performers include Rachel Riese, Swati, Anais Mitchell, Maggie Pearce and EJ, many touring folk and singer-songwriter acts as well as prominent locals.

Typical sets are dependent upon timeslot, etc. (there are often multiple performers a night). There is a small sound system but electric bands can often play barroom style, right off the stage, as the room is small. There are a few monitors available. Bigger or electric bands are welcome to bring their own sound reinforcement.
