Hailed as the "Champagne of Dive Bars," the Parkside Lounge is an old-school juke joint on the Lower East Side. Parkside is looking for Sonicbids artists to play.

Availability and open slots change consistently, apply to play and we'll find out a day and time that works best for everyone!

The Opportunity

Located in the Lower East Side, Parkside Lounge is a funky East Village mainstay that hosts an eclectic roster of local electric & acoustic artists. Musicians who would like to play at Parkside Lounge are offered to use professional backline equipment and will be compensated for their performance. This is an amazing opportunity to get active in the NYC downtown music scene and start building a fan base and relationships with one of the best venues in the big apple.  They just don't make them like this anymore... live music 7 days a week, cheap drinks, no high-fructose corn syrup, and 100% tourist-free (well 94% but we get the cool ones). Make no mistake, this is not a dive bar. It's an intergalactic pirate ship destined for greatness. 

The Band

  • This is a great opportunity for local, regional and nationally touring artists. 
  • We're looking for bands of all genres that play original music. We love Rock, Jazz, Folk, Acoustic, Country, Blues, Pop and Soul acts
  • Bands must be actively playing shows 
  • Bands must be willing to heavily promote the show if chosen to play
  • All acts applying must meet the criteria that we look for, lyrics, stage presence, style and artists must have a fanbase
  • Acts must have a solid online presence
