SONG OF THE DAY

The Monkees – Goin’ Down

In case you missed the news… We’re thrilled to announce we’re reopening the (ware)HOUSE on June 4, and Sarah Potenza will be our guest. Sarah was scheduled to play the (ware)HOUSE in 2020. But we had to postpone due to COVID. This rescheduled concert is a name-your-price event.  We encourage you to donate $25/ticket — more…

Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors – Coming Home

I saw Drew Holcomb and his wife, Ellie, at the Sheldon Concert Hall in St. Louis in February. A great show! They played several new songs — some written while traveling around Tennessee in an RV, with their three children, during the height of the pandemic. This is one of those songs. The title track…

Keb’ Mo’ (w/ Old Crow Medicine Show) – The Medicine Man

Here’s one Keb’ Mo’ wrote last in 2020 while cooped up ’cause of COVID. He and his pals from Old Crow Medicine Show recorded it together. And he released it last year on his album Good to Be…  Today’s Song  Title: The Medicine Man Artist: Keb’ Mo’ (w/ Old Crow Medicine Show) Album: Good to…

Mary Gauthier – Amsterdam

Hi (ware)HOUSE Concerts friend. Sorry for the unannounced Song of the Say hiatus. But I’m back… …inspired by today’s artist, Mary Gauthier. I learned today that she has a new album coming out in June… …but she’s already released one song from it. I heard the song and thought, “I gotta share this one with…

Jimmy LaFave – Going Home

Good to see you again. Sorry I’ve been a stranger. I’ve been getting into Jimmy LaFave lately. So many great songs. I thought this would be a nice one to share on Valentine’s week. Put this on, turn it up, and hug your honey. And if you can’t be with the honey you love, hug…

George Jones (with Elvis Costello) – There’s a Stranger in the House

In 1980, Elvis Costello was THE angry young man. I saw him live around that time, and he sang half the time with his back to the audience. After his first three albums — My Aim is True, This Year’s Model, and Armed Forces — were released in 1977, 1978, and 1979. And then, in…

Albin Lee Meldau – Til the Sun Comes Around Again

I’m not even sure how this happened… …I stumbled upon KSYM — a small community radio station on the campus of San Antonio College in Texas. I’ve been streaming the station a lot lately. It plays a strange combination of old-timey roots music and alternative rock. I heard today’s artist on that station and liked…

Eleven Hundred Springs – See You in the Next Life

Eleven Hundred Springs was a Dallas-based band that ended its 23-year run in November 2021. I missed the entire thing. They never blinked on my radar until last month when I heard today’s song on WMOT (Nashville roots radio — which I often listen to online). Sorry I missed them… …because I like this song……

Susanna Hoffs (with Aimee Mann) – Name of the Game

Susanna Hoffs and Aimee Mann both fronted popular bands in the 1980s — Hoffs with the Bangles and Mann with ’til Tuesday. But they left that behind long ago. Both have had long, successful solo careers. Mann is a GREAT songwriter. Hoffs writes less and records lots of covers — including a series of excellent…

Eli “Paperboy” Reed – Mama Tried

This one is hot off the presses. Eli “Paperboy” Reed won’t release his new album, “Down Every Road” until April 29, 2022… …but earlier this week, he released a single from the album. The album cover looks like it came from the late 1960s. And so does the sound. Tonight’s song is a cover of…

Lucinda Williams – I Lost It

Happy Birthday Lucinda. I know. She’s not like Cher or Adele. She has a last name. But when someone says, “Lucinda,” you know who they mean, don’t you? And now I have to choose ONE song from SO MANY great ones. The one I’m choosing is so good she recorded it twice. The first version…

Neil Diamond (with The Band) – Dry Your Eyes

It’s Neil Diamond’s 81st birthday (1/24/2022). I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan… …maybe because I’ll pull my hair out if I hear another sports stadium crowd do that Sweet-Caroline-singalong (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, count your blessings). Now that I have that cynical outburst out of my system… …I…

John Gorka – Holed Up in Mason City

Howdy. Sorry I’ve been such a stranger. I’ve been holed up in the home office, working hard on some other things… …and (sorry to say) letting these emails slip. Glad to be back. And glad to share some good news… I’ve tentatively scheduled the reopening of the (ware)HOUSE. Nothing I can announce today. But stay…

Ruby Boots – Don’t Give a Damn

A shout-out to my friend Angela Kelly. She hosted today’s artist at one of her always-great Kelly House Concerts… …and I’ve been hooked ever since… …on Ruby Boots. Born Rebecca Louise “Bex” Chilcott, Ruby Boots is originally from Australia who settled in Nashville a few years ago. Her pal Brandy Zdan appeared with her at…

Israel Nash – Down in the Country

After a brief visit to 1994 to wish Shawn Colvin a happy birthday, let’s get back to some of the best of 2021. Israel Nash grew up in the Missouri Ozarks. His father was a preacher. His mother was an artist. Both encouraged him to pursue music. He moved to New York and then on…

Shawn Colvin – Killing the Blues

Happy Birthday, Shawn Colvin. She was born on January 10, 1958. In 1994, she released an album of covers that included the song I share today. That song was written by Rowland Salley, who played bass in Chris Isaak’s band. Salley never got anywhere as a solo artist, although he did release an album that…

Natalie Hemby – Radio Silence

I already featured Natalie Hemby on this list a couple of months ago… …and I haven’t doubled-up on many artists yet. But as I celebrate some of the best 2021 releases, Natalie deserves another nod. Here’s one from her October 2021 release Pins and Needles (great lyrics from a great lyricist included below).. Today’s Song …

Tim O’Brien – Pushing On Buttons (Staring At Screens)

Today… More 2021 goodness from a legend. Tim O’Brien released his new album “He Walked On” last July. Great album. This one sounds old-timey, but it’s about a very modern problem… Today’s Song  Title: Pushing On Buttons (Staring At Screens) Artist: Tim O’Brien Album: He Walked On (2021) YouTube Link:  youtu.be/dGkl6Qf3VUg Here are the Playlists:…

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you join our email list, you will receive invitations to all of our concerts with links to the page where you can reserve seats. When you join the list, you will receive instant confirmation with details (and links to reserve seats) for upcoming shows. So join now

Please contact tom@warehouseconcerts.org if you're not receiving invitations you expect. 

We're like a house concert -- only in a warehouse.

Like a house concert, our concerts are intimate events at which the audience and the artists are close to each other and interact. Guests arrive early for a pot-luck dinner, and many of our guests become regulars who connect with others in this growing community of music-lovers. 

We're different than the typical house concert because...well...we don't host our concerts in a house. We've converted a corner of our warehouse into a 2,500 sq. ft. black-box event space -- great sound and lighting and a really cool vibe. We fill the space with sofas and easy chairs so it's like a giant living room. 

You get the comfort, intimacy and community of a house concert. But the bigger room allows us to invite more guests and offer artists a well-deserved, great pay day. 

Unless otherwise noted in the posted event details, doors open at 6:30 and music starts at 8 p.m. 

Medici MediaSpace is our partner, sponsor and host. Medici is a fantastic co-working community -- inclusive, creative, diverse, funky, forward-thinking. When we came up with the idea for (ware)HOUSE Concerts and asked the leaders of Medici whether we could host them there, they said, "YES! Go for it." Medici is filled with people who come up with big ideas and work with others in the community to make them happen. "Yes! Go for it" is a common refrain here. 

No. All seating is general admission. When the doors open (usually) at 6:30 p.m, guests are allowed to save their seat. But you don't reserve a certain seat when you buy your ticket. 

Nope! No walk-ins allowed. You have to make a reservation in advance by clicking through to the reservation page on the website. You may pay in advance for your reservation or pay at the door (more expensive). But either way, you can't walk in without a reservation. If you don't have an invitation for the concert, you can get one instantly by joining our email list. The invitation will include a link to reserve your spot.  

(ware)HOUSE Concerts are private, underground, invitation-only events. But that doesn't mean they're exclusive. We welcome any and all music lovers. You're welcome to join our email list. And when you do, you will receive invitations to all events. 

The (ware)HOUSE is in St. Louis County, Missouri -- near the intersections of Interstate 170 and Page Ave. When you purchase tickets, we send you the address and driving directions.

The (ware)HOUSE has seating for up to 120 guests. 

Most of the artists we've booked fall into the "Americana" genre. We've also booked jazz and soul artists. Most of them are touring artists who are not from the St. Louis area. Our desire is to bring to St. Louis artists whom you otherwise might not get to see -- at least not in such a comfortable, intimate setting. We occasionally book local artists, too. 

Here's a list of previous (ware)HOUSE performers

We love to discover artists we don't know. So please contact us if you have an artist you'd like to tell us about.

But we also have a long list of artists we've already contacted about performing here. 

You are welcome to contact tom@warehouseconcerts.org if you wish to recommend an artist or inquire for yourself about performing at the (ware)HOUSE. 

But please understand, we only book one show per month, and we: 

  1. Have many artists we've already contacted to perform here and
  2. We receive a lot of recommendations and requests. 

So we will acknowledge your recommendation / request and thank you for it. But we can't follow-up and have conversations with everyone who sends us recommendations or requests. 

Please don't be offended if we say "no" or if you don't hear from us after we acknowledge and thank you for your recommendation / request. 

We hope you understand. 

Yes. For every (ware)HOUSE concert, we choose a nonprofit to highlight and help. When you buy a ticket, we will ask you to consider an optional donation to support the nonprofit. At most concerts, representatives from the nonprofit will be there to spread the word and collect donations. See below for more information...

That's up to the artist who is performing. Most artists are OK with that. Some are OK with photos but not videos. We'll tell you before the show starts. 

CONCERTS FOR A CAUSE

For every (ware)HOUSE concert, we choose a nonprofit to highlight and help. When you buy a ticket, we will ask you to consider an optional donation to support the nonprofit. At most concerts, representatives from the nonprofit will be there to spread the word and collect donations.

Here are the causes we've supported so far...
