What exactly do you guys do?
We are a concert promotion company based out of Portland, OR that books shows across Oregon, Washington, the NW and beyond! We book just about every genre, as well as non-music shows like comedy and burlesque. Check out our home page to see what concerts and shows we having coming up in your area!
What venues do you book?
Most of them in the Pacific Northwest! Name a venue in Seattle, Portland or Eugene and odds are, we have booked a show there. In Portland we primarily book the Roseland Theater, the Hawthorne Theatre, the Wonder Ballroom, the Crystal Ballroom, the Expo Center, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Keller Auditorium, as well as the Veterans Memorial Coliseum, and the Moda Center at the Rose Garden complex. In Seattle we primarily book The Showbox, Showbox SoDo, El Corazon, Chop Suey and the Crocodile, as well as the Paramount, The Moore, the Neptune, WaMu Theater, and KeyArena – but these are far from the only venues we work with. Check out our event listings to see where we are next!
I heard you guys are a metal promoter, why is my favorite hip-hop artist is on your site?
Mike Thrasher Presents may have started with booking a lot of indie, punk and metal bands, but we have grown exponentially over the years and now book pretty much every genre out there. Check out our event listings, we most likely have a show for every musical taste, no matter what you listen too.
I am in a local band and would love to play at one of your shows, how do I get in touch?
Right on, we are always looking for great local bands of all genres – head on over to our Contact Us page to get in touch.
I filled out your booking form and no one has gotten back to me yet, what gives?
Thanks for your interest in playing for Mike Thrasher Presents! The decision of whether or not to add locals, how many local bands we add, and which locals we add is not entirely up to us. We first must get approval from band management – a process that can take a fair amount of time so please bear with us and be patient! We try our best to reach out to every single band interested in booking with us, but we are a small team and occasionally get overwhelmed with requests depending on time of year. Just because we didn’t book you, or haven’t gotten back yet does not mean we did not like your music – just because your band wasn’t the right fit for one show does not mean you won’t be for another!
I am a journalist or photographer interested in getting on your press list for a show, who do I get in touch with?
Head on over to our Media Inquiries page to get in touch! We must get written approval from the band’s publicist and/or management for all press passes, so we MUST have at least 48 hours notice, but your request is more likely to be accepted if you give us more time.
I know you said at least 48 hours notice to get a photo/press pass, but I mixed up the dates and need a press pass for a show tonight, I promise you will get great coverage!
Sorry, but we cannot accommodate last minute photo pass approvals from anyone or any outlet. You can try getting in touch with the bands publicist directly or hit us up earlier next time the band comes through.
I filled out a media request form and no one has been in touch yet. Did you get the form?
If you filled out a form, we absolutely got it! All media requests must be approved by band management and this process can take time. We often don’t hear about approval until close to the show date. We do try our absolute best to respond to every request, even if you were not approved.
I really want tickets to one of your shows, but it is sold out! What can I do?
We feel your pain! Very occasionally a small number of tickets are released at the last minute so keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter feed and make sure to hit ‘attending’ on our Facebook event. If more tickets are released that will be the fastest way to hear about it!
