We’ll make this as easy as possible for the hosts. All you have to do is let us borrow your living room for about 3 hours, check names off the list at the door… in return you’ll get 5 additional free tickets for friends and our eternal gratitude.

Here’s how it works.

1. You have a house, loft, small gallery, studio or other intimate space where we can do a private show that can comfortably and safely host 40-60 people. There needs to be street parking, parking garage or public transportation nearby and your neighbors should be cool. It would be a huge bummer if someone called the cops because of all the extra cars and people coming to your house. You probably shouldn’t do this if you live in a small apartment with a bunch of uptight neighbors or a cranky landlord. Be realistic on how many people your place can hold. We need to know how many tickets we can sell in advance. Sorry, we can’t do these shows outside.

2. Ticket price will be $30. Everyone must buy tickets in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door. There will be no reselling or third-party tickets sales. All tickets sales are direct to fans from Undertow. Limit 4 tickets per person. These shows sell out quickly and we want everyone to have a fair opportunity to buy tickets.

3. We’ll provide the host with a list of everyone coming to the show. The host won’t have to deal with any money and will only need to check people off the list as they arrive. We ask guests to arrive between 7:00-7:45pm. The shows start at 8pm and we ask everyone to be out of your space by 10pm.

4. The host gets 5 additional free tickets for the show. If you have other friends beyond your 5 guests who want to come to the show you should direct them buy tickets on-line.

5. The shows will promoted on our websites, Facebook and Twitter and word-of-mouth. Your home address will not be published on the web and will only be given to people who purchase tickets.

6. We’ll need your help to spread the word on your Facebook and Twitter too. We’ll create a Facebook event for each show and make you a host of the event so you can easily invite your friends (Thank you!). Remember, please don’t post your address. The address only goes to people after they buy tickets. We need to keep the location private so random people don’t try to show up and pay at the door.

7. You don’t need any sort of sound system. All you need is are an armless chair for Mark to sit on and some kind of ambient lighting like a lamp on coffee table, floor lamp, or overhead lights with a dimmer to help create a cozy mood.

8. You don’t need seating for everyone. If you have a bunch of chairs, great! But most shows are floor seating and we let guests know they should bring a cushion, pillow or folding chair to sit on during the show.

9. There will be no opening acts on the living room shows.

10. We love dogs and cats… we really do! But an excitable pet running around during the show can be distracting for the guests and performers. If you have curious and friendly 4-legged family members, would you be ok with putting them in another part of the house or sending them to a friend’s house during the show?

PLEASE FILL IN ALL FIELDS BELOW

Address where the show will be hosted
Street addresss
apartment or unit number
City
State/Province
Zip/Postal
How many people do you think you can host? The average living room will hold 40-50 people. Please keep in mind when determining your capacity, you get five free tickets for friends that won't be included in the capacity. The capacity you tell us will be the number of tickets we put on sale.
Let us know where guests should park; street parking, nearby lot or garage parking, public transit stops.
Let us know where the performer should park (drive way, reserved space, street parking, etc)
Let us know what sort of seating situation you have; chairs for everyone, a few chairs, couches, mostly floor seating, etc. If it's mostly floor seating we'll let guests know to bring a pillow or cushion to sit on during the show.
Where should guests enter your space? Front door, back door, etc? How many steps? is your place ADA accessible?
It’s totally cool if you don’t want people to bring alcohol. We realize some shows being held in a churches or commercial spaces have restrictions and we’re happy to pass that info on to guests… but this is what we usually tell guests if you are ok with them bringing beverages… “The host is allowing attendees to bring a few beers or a bottle of wine to enjoy at the show. But please remember that this is a low-key intimate acoustic performance, not a party. Please pick-up after yourself after the show.”
Anything else you want us to know?
