Episode 26: Legitimize our drinking – A conversation with Joel Morrison from the Old Bar

Talking with Joel Morrison, co-owner and band booker of the Old Bar

The Old Bar is an iconic Melbourne venue – it’s a small room on Johnston Street that established bands come back to, and where new musicians get their start. Joel Morrison co-owns the place, and books the bands that play there.

We discuss how to book your first gig, how to approach a venue booker, how venue bookers choose bands, how to get a support slot, and of course, what it’s like to own a bar.
