Where is Be Here Now located?
The Village of Muncie at 505 North Dill Street (Muncie Indiana 47303)
We are right next to Greek’s Pizza with the Louvre Pyramid on top!
Do you have live music every night?
Nah sorry… for years we hosted events/bands 3-4 nights a week. It was an
uphill battle. Now we are open a more sustainable, realistic, and
manageable Thursday/Friday/Saturday (sometimes Sundays and other
special events) with shows most of those nights!
Where can I park?
Plenty of FREE parking options available nearby. We always recommend
parking on nearby streets (Dill/University/Dicks/Gilbert/North) as it is only a
short walk to the venue. The city does not enforce parking after 4pm or on
the weekends so there are no worries there! Unfortunately, we do not
control the lot immediately next to BHN so we cannot guarantee
availability or that a vehicle will not be towed if left after hours. The last
option is the parking garage across from The Chug.
I’m playing tonight, where should I load in my equipment?
Please take a moment to check in with our door person and they will point
you in the right direction. If the weather is nice you will likely be pulling
into the back alley to unload at back gate (please move vehicle quickly to
not block traffic!) or if you are lucky snag a spot at the back of the parking
lot to load in from. If weather is not conducive to an outdoor show plan on
parking in front of the venue and loading in through the front door to the
basement. If you are unsure… just ask!
Where can I purchase tickets to your events?
Where can I purchase tickets to your events?
We host few shows that are “ticketed”. Most are a price to “cover” the cost
of our events on day of show at the door. Cash only. If we are in a good
mood you can use the ATM inside. Otherwise pretend you are participating
in a “RETRO” theme night and have some cash in your hand it sure is more
What time do doors open for a show?
Almost exclusively doors are at 8PM and we try to kick events off at 9PM.
Check our event page for more details/exceptions.
What if I am on the guest list—How do I verify that I will be allowed in
the night of the show?
We recommend you double check with your contact the day before the
show to eliminate any confusion the night of the show. If you aren’t on the
list by the time you show up… it’s unlikely we are going to be that
cool about it. Most of our covers are $5-$10; be a friend and pitch in versus
only attending because you don’t have to pay.
I’m not on the guest list but can I get in for free?
Hell to the no.
My younger brother really wants to see the show tonight but he’s only
17 years old. Can he come to the show?
Most of our shows are 18+. Some exceptions on event pages.
Can I bring my newborn baby to Be Here Now?
No, that’s too young. Please find a babysitter.
Is there a dress code at Be Here Now?
Not really. But everyone has a better time if you aren’t going out of your
way to be divisive-whatever that means…
Can I take pictures?
Yes, in general. Please don’t be obtrusive. If you are told by staff to put your
cameras away then do so. We have no love for twitter/tik tok/or tattle tales
so grow up about it, eh?
I went to a show last night and I think I left my debit card / umbrella /
dignity / drum sticks / etc. What should I do?
The best thing for you to do would be to stop by Be Here Now to retrieve /
look for your lost item. We can’t do much about your lost dignity, but if you
leave your debit card behind you can expect to tip 20%!!!! (Funny how those
two things often coincide!) You may come by anytime after doors open and
one of our staff members will be able to assist you.
Who do I contact about booking a show/event/private party at Be Here
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with pertinent
information. Pretend you are applying for a job. That means be a
professional. Who are you, where are you located, what do you want from
us and why should we want to want from you? Links, videos, etc, etc… We
get a lot of requests so this is your first impression do it right!
My band is playing at Be Here Now and I have questions about load in,
back line, set times etc, who do I contact?
Same deal… and you probably already made it through booking so we will
be here to answer questions! Email email@example.com with
Questions, comments, concerns?
