So Sofar Sounds is something that started in London in 2009, it’s mini concerts meant to create an intensely intimate atmosphere that takes place in people’s living rooms. Marcus Foster has done one, Matthew and the Atlas, Rob Pattinson, The Staves, Dry the River, Matt Corby, TONS of awesome bands that we love here.
Anyway I (Andrea) am starting up a Sofar in my hometown. I’ve only had one event so far and it went pretty swell and I’m hoping to do more but anyway it would mean ever so much to me if you checked it out.
“There were no cameras at this show and no drinks, either (not even water), and the sound was turned just low enough that his music could be drowned out by a nearby person whispering. It was all designed to encourage pensiveness and stillness, and it was probably the longest many of us had given our undivided attention to something in quite some time.”
