Audio / Photo / Video Policy

AUDIO
We allow audio taping with prior approval wherever it does not conflict with venue or other restrictions beyond our control and as long as the taping does not distract the band or fans in any way. We do not allow direct soundboard patches.

Please contact Undertow at least 7 days before a show to get approval. We’ll send you an e-mail confirmation. You must print this and bring it to the show for the tour manager to see before you are allowed to tape.

We support the free trading of live recordings between fans. No downloadable songs maybe be included on blogs or other websites without direct approval from Undertow.

Songs that have not been previously released on an album will be excluded from trading. Audience Q&A segments will be excluded from trading.

All audio must be sent to Undertow for approval before it maybe be traded.

David Bazan and his representatives will retain all rights to use any live recordings in anyway without restrictions.

PHOTO
We don’t allow professional photography at shows without prior permission. Please contact Undertow at least 7 days before a show for consideration. Please let us know what media outlet you are working with and a link to some of your recent photos. We will review all requests and send you an e-mail confirmation once approved. We have a very limited number of photo passes we can issue per show. You must print the email confirmation and bring it to the show for the tour manager to see before you will be allowed to shoot photos.  We can’t grant access to pre-show sound check or backstage areas of the venue.

Fans may take photos with compact cameras or cell phones without a flash for their own personal use.

Remember, this is a show, not a photo shoot. Please be respectful of the performance and the people around you. We reserve the right to ask anyone to stop taking photos if it becomes distracting to the band or fans.

David Bazan and his representatives will retain all rights to use any live photos in anyway without restrictions if they are published on the internet or any other medium.

VIDEO POLICY
We don’t allow video taping at any show. This includes House Shows. Do not bring video recording devices to shows. You will not be allowed to enter the show with these devices. Unauthorized videos found on Youtube, Vimeo and other video hosting sites will be removed without warning.

NO EXCEPTIONS.
