Sofar Sounds Brought To You By DPR Intern: Lily Kramlich-Taylor

When I visited my friends in Dallas back in January, I was a little confused when they told me they were hosting a concert in their living room. The day of the event, complete strangers began filing into their home while a production crew began setting up. Throughout the two-hour period, four lesser-known folk, indie, and country bands from the Dallas area played for 20 minutes each in front of a crowd of 30 people sitting on the kitchen counter, living room floor, or standing in the back.

As someone who loves discovering new bands and music, I was hooked.

Sofar Sounds is a company that brings emerging artists from a range music genres to intimate shows in living rooms around the world. Luckily, one of those cities is Dallas! The concerts are free, relying on donations, and by signing up for their monthly e-mail, you will get access to their list of show dates. Register for the concert you want to attend, quickly, because they fill up fast. A few days before the show, you find out if you made the list and where the secret show will be hosted. Bring a friend and a bottle of wine, and enjoy the music!
