What is the Shitty Barn?  Audience and performer coexist in an intimate and integrated space with as little separating instruments and ears as possible. No stage. A limited number of tickets sold.  Like having the performance in your living room (except, in this case, a sh*tty barn). 

When are shows?  We operate May through October.  Shows are mostly Wednesdays, rarely Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.  Our schedule should be consulted.

What time and how long are shows?  On weekdays, the doors open at 6:00 pm and music starts at 7:30.   

Where is the Shitty Barn?  506, E. Madison St., Spring Green, WI

Are shows kid friendly?  Children 6 years and older are welcome. Because it is an intimate concert setting that lasts 2+ hours, it is not a good place for jelly grubs and squirmy worms. We love your kids (really!), but we leave our young'uns at home and you probably should, too: If our adult patrons are disturbed, we will ask you to step outside and/or leave.  All of that said, you know your kids better than we do.  Infants/toddlers (lapable kids) do not need a ticket (all other kids do).

Dogs?  What about dogs? Please, no dogs. We're an old farm in an industrial park, and they're just not safe.

Do you take credit cards?  C'mon!  It's just a shitty barn!  Cash-money, baby! 

Do you sell food?  2013 catering is provided by Enos Farms, offering different farm-fresh options each week. We do often encourage you to bring your own grillables.  Check show detail pages to see whether we will be firing up a grill for you.  You'll see the "grill" icon.

Can I bring my own beverages? Please no carry-ins.  We sell wine, beer, some soda and water at our cash bar.

What should I bring?  food to grill (if grill icon is present on show detail page on our website), a picnic (sans beverages), a camp chair or blanket, bug juice and sunscreen (if you don't like our cheap and nasty stuff), weather-appropriate clothing, barn appropriate footwear, cash-ola for hydration and/or (modest) inebriation.

Are tickets available at the door?  We strongly encourage purchasing tickets in advance.  Shows do and will sell out, though any unsold tickets will be available at the door.  It's best to check our website, Facebook page or Twitter account for the latest details about ticket availability.

What is this icon mean for some shows?  The icons are earplugs. The more solid earplugs (on scale of 1 to 4) the more likely the show is to be loud
