Booking Request

We love to play events that support feminism and women’s rights, the queer community, labor, the environment, social and economic justice, peace and community self-determination. Please read The RudeMo Rules of Engagement first, and then fill out the form below.

You should be aware that our schedule is very tight, our members are very busy and we cannot make every event. If we can’t do it, please don’t take that as a dis of your group or your cause. Also, keep in mind that if the facts of the event change materially from the proposal--for example, the nature of the event or the time or place--we might find ourselves unable to follow through with our commitment.

Please be aware we can be a really big band that has certain spatial needs.

Also, we generally need at least two weeks advance notice (more is better, and increases the chance that we can do it) to make a collective decision and make sure that enough RMO players can make it. Please provide as much of the following information as you can in order to help streamline our decision process. Note that not having some of the things mentioned below does not mean that we can’t or won’t play the event.

When does your event take place (date and time)?
Where does the event take place (venue, city, state, etc.)? Is the venue ADA-accessible?
What's your name?
What is your email address?
Who is organizing it and what is the group’s mission and history?
What type of event/action is this? What is the cause being advanced?
What is the role and leadership of people of color, queer/LGBT people, women, youth, or other marginalized groups in connection with the event?
By what date do you need a commitment from us?
What would RMO’s role be at the event? Will other musical groups be playing?
Is the venue ADA-accessible? If not, what type of stairs, etc., are involved? To make our participation as inclusive as possible, we might need a chair or two if this is a standing gig, or help pushing a wheelchair, if this is a mobile gig. Would your organization be able to help with this?
If this is a benefit, how much of the funds raised will go to the intended recipient (i.e., percent, door money, bar money)? What expenses have to be covered from the funds raised (e.g., paying staff)?
Who are the sponsors of the event?
Is there money to pay the band? Again, this won’t disqualify your event, but hey, we gotta ask.
Will there be a secure place to store instrument cases and coats at the venue--or if a parade or march, will there be a vehicle to store our instrument cases? Will there be provisions (water, beer, food) for the band?
How many people do you expect to come and how is this event being advertised? (We’ll want copies of the flyer/online announcement to help us cross-promote the event if we decide to play.)
How do you know us? Where did you see us or hear about us?

To invite the RMO to your event, please include as much of the above information as possible and submit it.
