HOUSE SHOW HOSTS, LET’S TALK,
You’ve done it. You’re a grown up and you have your own space. Or possibly you still live with your parents. Either way if you live in a home where the living room can fit 15 or more people and you’’re interested in hosting a house show, we’re looking for you! My good friend, Rusty Clanton, and I are searching for hosts to book house shows this December 1st - 14th!
What does a house show look like?
6pm, we’ll arrive to set up. 7pm “doors open”, guests start arriving, mingle, eat food or snacks if you wish to provide them. 8pm music starts. Our show is just under an hour 20. Mingle at the end, then kick people out when you are comfortable with it. You can think of a house show as a potluck with entertainment (although you’re not required to ask your guests to bring food).
Who can come to my show?
That’s up to you! We need at least fifteen guests to cover expenses so if you have fifteen friends who will come, you’re set!Or if you’re feeling more adventurous you can let us promote it (guests would be required to RSVP before we send out your address, we would also cap it at your capacity!)
What do I need to be considered?
1] A living area that can seat at least fifteen people (it’s okay to seat people on the floor, but your guests will probably appreciate some seating).
2] a guest bedroom and a couch to sleep on. We’re two artists, so we’ll need two separate spaces to sleep.
3] you need to live East of Chicago (Chicago included).
4] You need to be available for a show in the first two weeks of December.
5] You need to be 18, or if you’re parents are interested have them email us!
What about money?
The show will be a suggested donation of $10 per person with 85% going to the artist and 15% going to you (the host) to help cover any snacks you purchased.
I’m interested! Now what?
