As independent artists making our way through this labyrinthine industry, we find ourselves performing in a wide variety of settings and venues – historic theaters, sprawling festivals, well worn rock clubs, converted barns. Occasionally we get the chance to perform in the most intimate of settings though – somebody’s living room. House concerts are a staple of the folk music and singer/songwriter community, and while our sound tends to be a little bigger than what most presenters are looking for, there are the intrepid few who open their doors to the Dime. And boy do we have a good time when they do. We recently played 2 sold out shows- the excellent Circle in the Square in MD and the Bikenetic Series hosted by Stone Room Concerts in VA (the latter of which I suppose is not technically a house concert since it takes place in an awesome bike shop). It’s really great to be able to talk with the audience off mic during the set and break bread with the presenter pre-show. Sure we aspire to Carnegie Hall, but that doesn’t take away from the memorable stops along the way.
