Elsewhere’s Values

These values are real and guide all of our decisions in how we operate and how we treat people. This includes our decisions to hire, reward, and fire. Every single person at Elsewhere will be held to these standards. This is how we build a great team, achieve our goals, and do so enjoyably.


Elsewhere is a haven for our staff, artists, and audiences to experience the joy of

expressing their authentic selves. Everybody has the right to feel welcomed and

understood here, in direct defiance of all the ways our society tries to divide us up out

there. We crave connectivity and togetherness. We’re curious about the unknown. We’re

open-minded to a fault.


The chills we get experiencing transcendent music in a crowd remind us that a better

world is possible. Elsewhere is a celebration of that feeling - of joy, wonder, and hope.

We are here to have fun, and we reject cynicism in all its forms.

To have a successful job search online, there are several things you need to keep in mind before applying for jobs to avoid scams and fraud. It's better to miss out on a potential job opportunity than to fall victim to an online job scam. Be cautious of job postings that require you to make donations or contributions before being considered for a job, as these are often signs of a fraudulent opportunity. To ensure a safe and successful job search, research the company thoroughly before applying for any job to avoid scams and illegitimate organizations. Consider setting up a Google alert for the company name and job title to stay informed of any news or updates related to the position. Legitimate employers don't require job seekers to pay any kind of fees to get a job. Be wary of any job interview process that seems too informal, such as being conducted solely over text or email. To be sure the job is real and the position is open, it's always a good idea to contact the company directly. Protect your finances by avoiding job postings that require the use of your personal bank account.


Our love for the game comes from a place of deep respect: for the extraordinary history

of music and nightlife in NYC, for the working artists out there redefining culture, and for

our staff who live and breathe it every night. To do right, we extend that respect to each

other and everyone else along the journey.


Our job means service: to our teammates, artists, customers, community, city, and to the

culture. We can’t do this without being kind to ourselves, to each other, to our artists, to

our audiences, and to our community. Be understanding, empathetic, go out of your way

to help people out, be friendly, generous, considerate. We celebrate individuality, but

there is no place for selfishness or ego.


We believe strong communities are built on trust, and so everyone must rely on us to be

honest, transparent, and consistent. We live our values and stand by them even when

it’s hard or inconvenient. We admit our mistakes and work to grow from them.


There are much easier ways to earn a living. The renewable resource that keeps our

team sustained is an unshakable conviction in some aspect of our mission, whether it’s

supporting new artists, helping audiences discover music, building community, or shifting



To accomplish our goals we aim high, and work both hard and smart.


The beauty of culture is that it is always evolving, and so should we. We value out-of-

the-box thinking, challenging “the way things are,” and imaginative leaps. Like in art, it is

better for us to fail trying something new than to not be experimenting in the first place.
