Can I get in for free?

Probably not, unless you’re famous, a member of the press, or we owe you a favor.
Put Admissions as the subject and contact us at showinfo@motorcomusic.com to state your case.

Can I bring my camera?

If the band welcomes cameras in the specific show posting, then bring it. Otherwise, leave it.

Do you have a Coat Check?

We have a few coat hooks near the front door. You can park your parka there but Motorco is not responsible for your clothing nor its contents.

Yes. If you lose an item at Motorco, please email us at lost@motorcomusic.com and/or come by the venue the following day.

There is no smoking or vaping (e-cigarettes) inside Motorco. You may do so outside, but NOT under the covered areas of the Patio and Veranda. We do allow re-entry to most shows.

What if a show is sold out?

Sold out means there are no more tickets available. There will not be tickets sold at the door if the show is sold out. Please be careful if purchasing tickets from someone else. We can verify the validity of tickets if you email us the information (email of original buyer and the order number).
