The 2016 Revival Series
Because in a perfect world:
shows are free, people show up, bands get paid and local music reigns supreme!

The Revival Series, now in its third year is a new model of local music showcase run through Creative.Life.Support. Every Revival show held at Mr. Smalls Theatre is a full-scale concert with full staff, lighting, and sound crew to provide local and regional artists experience playing a larger venue than they might be used to. In 2015 alone, over 2000 music lovers supported 150 Pittsburgh artist, collectively earning over $3000.

So how does THIS work? Well, each band receives a predetermined number of tickets which they distribute FREE to fans/friends/family/etc. Then each patron bringing a pre-printed ticket to the show will earn their band $1. Tickets will have the band's name printed first for easy identification & tallying, but each ticket will reflect the evening's full lineup. So if a band asks for 100 tickets and brings in 100 people they'll get $100, plain and simple.

Also at the end of each band's set the Mr. Smalls staff will "Pass the Hat" around the venue so patrons can donate extra money to the band. Attendees are free to donate to any/all of the other acts or not donate anything at all, it's totally up to you. So please come enjoy the free music and help us with this ground breaking experiment in local music culture!
