The Catalyst

Frequently Asked Questions


Where can I buy tickets?
Print-at-home or Will Call tickets are available online at, and directly through the Catalyst Facebook page.  Tickets are also available to purchase directly from the club during business hours.  A limited number of tickets are sometimes available at the door, but advance purchase is recommended as shows frequently sell out.

How can I pick up my Will Call tickets?
The Box Office opens 30 minutes prior to all shows, or you can get them from the upstairs bartender during regular business hours.  You will need to either present a valid photo ID or the original credit card used to make the online purchase.

 What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept cash and credit card.  (Visa, Mastercard, Discover)

Can I keep my ticket stub?
Yes, you may request a ticket stub on your way out after the show has ended.

Can I get a refund for a ticket I purchased?
We are sorry but unless a show is cancelled, we do not issue refunds, returns or exchanges on purchased tickets.

Can I transfer my Will Call tickets to someone else?
For most shows you may transfer tickets to a second party, however some shows are noted as NO TRANSFERS (of tickets). If you will not be able to attend the event, or are purchasing the tickets for someone else, you will need to provide a photocopy of your ID with a written release of the tickets.  The note must be signed by whoever purchased the tickets, and have the name of the person picking them up. All rules for Will Call pickup apply to the person that the tickets were transferred to.


When should I arrive for the show?
Door times are noted on your ticket as well as on the club calendar.  Guests may enter the venue as soon as we open doors.  The show begins generally one hour after door times.  The set times for all shows vary and the times that specific bands take the stage cannot be guaranteed.
