Host a JAW house concert!

So you want to host a Lower Key House Show?

Here's what you need to know!

Your space should comfortably hold 10-20 people (or more). Living rooms, garages, covered patios, rec rooms, common areas at apartment complexes, art galleries, public businesses after-hours, are all fair game as long as there is access to 110v (standard home) power for the small sound system and a contingency plan in case of rain.

You should have approximately 6ft x 8ft of designated "stage" space for the setup of instruments and microphones.

Your space should be relatively free of noise. All of these shows will be acoustic, which means we try to avoid performing near distractions like trains or highway traffic, dogs barking, hospitals, and airports.

Your space should have relatively enough parking for guests, or be accessible via public transportation.

You don't need to have seating for everyone, but it's nice to have some! We usually invite guests to bring their own chairs or cushions for sitting on the floor.

It’s important to note this won’t be a typical house show where anyone can show up. Guests will buy tickets in advance directly from Lower Key Music and will receive your address privately ahead of the show. As the host, all you’ll need to do is check names off at the door. To benefit the artist, hosts agree to donate their space and time but are encouraged to sell refreshments or put out a “tip the host!” jar or QR code if they want. If you are interested in hosting a more traditional public show where you sell the tickets, check out this page for more info.

Above all else you should be willing and excited to have a group of new friends in your space to enjoy a night of acoustic music.

Show schedules typically run as follows...

7:00pm - Artist load in and set up
7:30pm - Guests arrive
8:00pm - Music begins
9:15pm - Music ends, artist sells merch
10:00pm - Artist load out / curfew
