The Come Up was started by three friends and the idea for just one show. Since its debut in February 2018, The Come Up has grown into a major force in San Jose’s growing music scene: presenting over 60 unique live acts, across 8 different venues, distributing more than $4,000 to performers in the greater Bay Area.
We’re trying to address a need. The San Jose area is severely lacking in quality mid-size, all ages music venues. But there is no shortage of talented and hungry performers, looking to reach people with their art and make their mark on a rapidly changing city.
The Come Up is a DIY platform for artists to thrive and build the local music scene in San Jose. We are an open platform, always eager to collaborate with other artists and creative people – if you’re interested in getting involved, please hit us up via email: firstname.lastname@example.org!
Every city needs a movement of creative people willing to put in work, take risks, and gather people around a shared love of art & positivity. No one’s going to do it for us. So let’s make it happen.
With love, The Come Up Boys.
