"THERE IS NO FUCKING DRINKING AT THE LEGION!!!!"

We made a "Before you play...." note for the Monster House in the style of the early 2000's Legion note. A bit less hilarious than that one.


"BEFORE PLAYING THE MONSTER HOUSE, READ THIS….


ABOUT US: The Monster House hosts shows in our home to give national, international, and local independent acts an autonomous, politically aware place to play in Columbus, OH. We strive to be a welcoming environment for anyone who wishes to come. Help us keep our house completely free of racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, and mindless disrespect. We believe shows in alternative spaces can lead to a more direct, personal and positive connection with music and with the other folks in attendance. Our house is not a launch pad to fame and fortune - it is part of a growing community intentionally challenging the popular definition of success. We know that the art and music we make can be shared on our own terms. Music is the reason for the gathering – it is not a house party, it is a show.

THE DOUGH:
Donations of $5 are strongly encouraged at each show to support touring bands. Please make this apparent when advertising the show. The money is to support them, not the house. Locals play as support to the touring bands and will not normally be paid. Usually, locals get some food, have fun, play to an audience of music enthusiasts, and make a connection with an out of town band.

ARRIVE:
Come by 8:00 pm for food, load-in, and line up arrangements. Normally, out of town bands will be welcomed to spend the night at our house.

BE A GOOD GUEST: Be courteous and clean up after yourself. While we allow drinking at our house please do not take this as an invitation to get inebriated to the point of 1. insulting others or 2. not being able to control yourself, mentally or physically.

THANKS ♥ MONSTERS"
