‘Songs From A Room’ is a series of secret pop-up music gigs in living rooms. I was invited to the secret show (in NYC, Oct. 27th) and at first, I thought I was going to the venue The Living Room (les). Upon closer inspection I realized I would be attending someone’s living room had no idea what to expect. So exclusive! It was such a unique experience – pretty much as intimate as you can get.
It began over a year ago in the London living room of Passion Ate Dave. He started Songs From A Room with two music fans (Rafe and Rocky) as a movement to support new music.
These evenings can always take place … the economic winds may blow cold, but this kind of thing can always happen.
He is passionate, it’s not just a clever name.
Here are some highlights from the evening…
Passion Ate Dave – “Home”
Linfinity – “Spanish Harlem” (cover)
Bear Hands – “What A Drag” (By the way, they changed their sound specifically for this session since sofarsounds can only accommodate acoustic music. Pretty impressive. I actually really like the song played this way! But you can go to their myspace page to hear how it normally sounds.
I’m pretty excited about the future of Sofar, hoping that it leads them to host an evening in my backyard and we can call it Sofab! I came up with that and am way too pumped about it.
