Restaurant Details

The East Quad Music Co-op is a student run non-profit organization that hosts shows in The Halfass (formerly the Halfway Inn), which is located in the basement of East Quad (a dormitory in Ann Arbor).

The EQMC stopped running shows for various reasons in 2001, but restarted on January 23rd of 2004. The EQMC provides you with one of the only all-ages, quality music venues in Ann Arbor.

Aside from rare exceptions, shows always cost $5. All of the money taken at the door goes to the artists, unless the EQMC needs to take a small amount out to fix equipment.

Shows are held every other weekend on either Friday or Saturday night at The Halfass. The Halfass entrance is on Church St. between Hill and Willard...right next to the East Quad loading dock. Doors for all shows are at 9:30 p.m. with music starting around 10.
