Earlier this week, fellow music lover and Twitter junkie Mike told me about Sofar Sounds after attending an event this weekend in Atlanta. Taking house concerts to a new level, this concept is so freaking cool. Get music lovers to sign up / host house concerts of up and coming bands in their city. Make it invite only. Keep it secret who is playing until the guests arrive.
I want in.
I immediately go to their website to check it out…and it’s started up in about 2 dozen cities around the world, but of course, nothing in Charlotte. I love my Queen City, but when it comes to music, it can be so behind the times. *insert dramatic sigh* And shit fire, I live in an apartment and can’t even offer to host something. *more dramatic sighing*
I’m not kidding you, later the same day, my insane band crush The Rouge posted a video of them playing a Sofar Sounds show in Nashville. SERIOUSLY? Now I want to be part of this inner Sofar Sounds circle even more…
Check out The Rouge performing “Medication”… and “Handcuffs” … then tell me you don’t want to be at this party, too?
