Side Door is using tech to bring people together offline for real human tactile experiences. The premise is that any space can be a venue so long as there’s a motivated host. Music, dance, comedy, improv, lectures, film screenings – you name it. We connect hosts and artists (like Tinder), facilitate the booking and manage the ticketing. By trimming the overhead of touring, even emerging artists can make a living at their craft, circumventing and disrupting the gatekeepers of the entertainment industry in an exciting direct-to-audience gigging economy. Cultural connectors in towns large and small can bring the arts to their local friends and community, fostering magical intimate experiences.
