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

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. 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.
