PopGun has meant a lot of things to a lot of different people at a lot of different times: a show promotion company, an independent touring agency, a poster design house, and a bunch else; what we are and will always be is a small team of kids who thrive on the music we love.
‘Team’ is an operative word. I mean, what’s the difference between watching a concert at home on DVD and going out to your favorite venue? To us, the live experience is an opportunity to see your favorite artists – and not just one per show – in a comfortable environment, at a fair price, and with a community of people you love. Your team.
Maybe you make rad music, write about it, film it, or just appreciate rad music? One of the ironies of New York City is how close we all live to these various communities and yet how little time we find to engage.
Whether its a balls-out midnight dance party or an acoustic BBQ, in a venue, church, or basement, we hope our shows and parties offer humble proof of music’s power to bring people together.
We hope you’ll become a part of our team. Cheers!
