Haven’t heard of SoFar Sounds? While we use it as a synonym for some of the most intimate experiences we have ever had with live music, it actually stands for Songs From a Room. Birthed in London in 2009 from a couple of concert goers that were simply tired of uncomfortable, cell phone ridden, disrespectful crowds, SoFar Sounds has turned into a worldwide movement offering secret intimate gigs in almost 200 cities. These stripped-down performances only happen for audiences made up of music lovers, industry professionals and really, anyone that can follow the “rules” and make the waitlist cut.
This month, SoFar Sounds: LA has revealed that they will not only host 4 shows but also the dates and times! What about the bands? Well, that’s part of the secret fun – you don’t know where to go until you’ve made the cut and you won’t discover who is performing until you arrive. Don’t let the mystery fool you, while they’re mostly local artists, guests with big names (Bastille, Girlpool, Moses Sumney, Karen O, etc) aren’t shy to special occasion. September dates below:
