I’m not sure how or why, but I had followed Sofarsounds on twitter and I kept seeing pictures of gigs… in peoples living rooms.
As you may well know, my favourite kinda music is live, intimate and acoustic, so I have no idea why it’s taken me until now to get in contact with the guys at Sofar.
What is it? People offer up their living rooms to host the unique evening. Secret talent is invited to play, all you have to do is rock up with beverages of your own and listen to real music in alike company.
Where is it? Sofarsounds have expanded ridiculously in 2 years and you can now find events all over the world (find your nearest one here
How do I get involved? Visit their website here www.sofarsounds.com
, click ‘attend’, find your nearest city and sign up to the mailing list where you will then get all the information you need!
Once you’re accepted into an event you will be contacted by email. The night before the event you will be given a tube station to be at (my location was London), along with an address.
It’s a bit of a treasure hunt which I thought was a lovely effect, you just follow the Sofar signs from the tube to the location…
Someone on the door will tick off your name and then you find a spot, pop open a drink and thats you sorted for the evening!
Pretty cool idea hey!
I originally got in contact with them because I wanted to play at one of the evenings, and after going myself and being part of such a beautiful idea – it has made me want to be a part of it even more.
Perhaps come down when I get to play 🙂
Big up to Rafe the guy behind this. Supporting real music.
Please do come and join me on my other social media for updates, photos and more 🙂
