We want a band that plays loud and hard every night
That doesn't care how many people are counted at the door
That would travel one million miles and ask for nothing more than a plate of food and a place to rest
They'd strike chords that cut like a knife
It would mean so much more than t-shirts or a ticket stub
They'd stop at nothing short of a massacre
Everyone would leave with the memory that there was no place else in the world
And this was where they always belonged!

Please note! We get an awful lot of gig requests and unfortunately we can't go for every single one of them, sorry.
We are also much more likely to favour suitable Prague-based bands for any potential support slot.

Keep Your Eyes Open or k.y.e.o. is an independent concert promoter based in Prague, Czech Republic. We're promoting gigs in Prague and Brno since 2007 to both well-established and unsigned acts, bands ranging from local to international, from underground rats to Pitchfork stars. We've gone on to produce events of all genres, shapes and sizes, taking place anywhere from filthy basements to artistic warehouses, from community centres to livingrooms, aiming to turn each event into a special one. We're constantly on the lookout, keeping the eyes open.

As for the real deal, think Ben Frost, DFHVN, Firewater, Russian Circles, Rocky Votolato, Wolves in the Throne Room, Murder by Death, This Will Destroy You, Yob, Owen Pallett, Kilimajaro Darkjazz Ensemble, Swans, Chelsea Wolfe, Old Man Gloom, Melvins, Wovenhand, Crippled Black Phoenix, Album Leaf or see our gigstory. We work with a bunch of local promoters, graphic design studio Carton Clan (thus flyers and posters are also great), and Goout.cz, selling our tickets. With d.i.y. ethic in mind and supporting local music scene as well, we are extremely passionate about the artists we represent and the music they stand for. Driven by our love of music of all genres, our events that are vibrant, lusty, intense and out aloud. Well, except the acoustic ones!
