Sleepover Shows

Check out these sweet videos from our rehearsal at the nationally acclaimed Symphony Hall in Boston!  

Sleepover Shows are three song sets of acoustic or stripped down versions performed by bands that we love as they make their way through Boston. Though it started as something we did when bands needed a place to crash on the night of their shows, we now mostly film the sessions before or after a show and let the bands find their own ways home (though the offer still stands).
Basically, we try to use our spaces as creatively as we can.  We’ve filmed in the back seats of cars, on top of playground equipment, in doorways and alleys, in bathtubs and stairwells.  We try our best to get the bands to take their music outside of the confines of the studio and have some fun.
And that’s the point: to capture some great music that maybe isn’t always as polished, but shows these artists having a good time doing what they love. We’re doing what we love too, and hope you enjoy the videos!

I love the story about this series starting by offering touring musicians a place to crash.
If we ever live in a place bigger than a one-bedroom NYC apartment, we might just need to do this.
(I suppose in the meantime, we could offer our couch to solo performers?)
