This is a very unique opportunity. As you may or may not know, you MUST be a licensed (& bonded) booking agent in order to book artists in MA, but working with Ironic would allow you the opportunity to get some important hands-on experience and get your foot in the music booking industry.

Optimally, you are extremely well organized, motivated, a go-getter, have a flexible schedule and have at least 5+ years experience, focusing mainly on marketing, sales, promotion, advertising, etc.
