Listening Rooms

Listening Room are similar to house concerts in that they are small venues that provide an intimate listening experience. But unlike house concerts, listening rooms are for profit entities. Listening rooms venues are typically separate spaces associated with existing businesses like art gallerys, book/music stores, coffeehouses, and recording studios. Or they can be a stand-alone place to experience great live music that only handle 50-100 guests at a maximum. In all cases the emphasis is on the music, but sometimes refreshments can be bought as well.
