SONG OF THE DAY

NRBQ – The Moon and Other Things

Terry Adams has been with NRBQ for the bands entire 50+-year ride. He’s the only remaining founding member. And with new lineup after new lineup, he has kept that NRBQ sound going… …including in 2021… …with the album Dragnet, the band’s first since 2014, and easily one of my favorites from the past year. I’ve…

The Felice Brothers – Jazz on the Autobahn

Here’s another of my favorites from 2021. Today’s Song  Title: Jazz on the Autobahn Artist: The Felice Brothers Album: From Dreams To Dust (2021) YouTube Link (Official Video):  youtu.be/_WLaWauXW4w Here are the Playlists:   Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3xYKtYparrdJRYAjBj9kjx?si=eb6c3ebc30484204  Apple: https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/ware-house-concerts-song-of-the-day/pl.u-Ggz26cZlAVLj 

Martin Sexton – Hold On

I love Martin Sexton. If you’ve not seen this guy live, jump at the chance when he comes to town. Maybe that chance will come at the (ware)HOUSE. I’ll ask him. Until then, here’s one of his — on my list of 2021 favorites. A soul-infused, toe-tapping, hand-clapping, horn-blowing ode to “hold on” to what…

Adia Victoria – Magnolia Blues

Happy New Year. Welcome to 2022 — the year when we WILL reopen the (ware)HOUSE for live music. I’ll keep you posted. I hope it’s soon. I took some time away from the computer over the holidays, but not away from music. I listened to many “Best of 2021” lists, and I’ll share some of…

Taylor Swift – Champagne Problems

OK… I know Taylor Swift is a polarizing figure. All that drama. All the songs about old boyfriends. That thing with Kanye at the awards ceremony (look it up if you don’t know; it’s wild). Count me among the eye-rollers for many years. And even though I think it’s fine, I don’t listen much to…

Marc Broussard – Home

Here’s another one I heard on WMOT Roots Radio the other day… A great one from all the way back in 2004…  Today’s Song  Title: Home  Artist: Marc Broussard  Album: Carencro  (2004) YouTube Link (Official Video):  youtu.be/FuWPseegaKw Here are the Playlists:   Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3xYKtYparrdJRYAjBj9kjx?si=eb6c3ebc30484204  Apple: https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/ware-house-concerts-song-of-the-day/pl.u-Ggz26cZlAVLj 

Allison Russell – Nightflyer

Thanks to WMOT — Roots Radio in Nashville for this one. I was listening online yesterday. They played this song I share with you today. It’s by Allison Russell from her 2021 album Outside Child. This is her first solo album — after making some great music with her husband in their band Bird of…

Michael Nesmith – Different Drum

Michael Nesmith died last week. Most remember him as a Monkee. Some know he was the Monkee with a music career before and after the TV show. The most musical Monkee. He wrote today’s song before he became a TV star. And he recorded it after Linda Ronstadt and The Stone Poneys made it a…

Mason Proffit – You Win Again

On this day in 1944, 21-year-old Hank Williams married his manager, Audrey Sheppard. Hank Williams, Jr. came from that union — which eventually led us to Hank Williams III. Other than those offspring, this wasn’t a marriage to celebrate. Somehow, it lasted for eight years, until in 1952 Williams and Sheppard divorced. Soon after, he…

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss – Can’t Let Go

In 2007, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss teamed up to release an album called Raising Sand. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss? Really?!? But what an album that was. And in retrospect, when you strip away all the rock-God hubbub from his Led Zeppelin days and distill the music down to its roots, you see that…

Brandi Carlile – You and Me On The Rock

From Joni Mitchell to Brandi Carlile… I shared in the last email a selection from Mitchell’s “Archives, Vol 2…” album, a live version of “California” that she performed in London before she recorded the studio version for her album “Blue.” Speaking of “Blue,” when Brandi Carlile first heard Joni Mitchell, she wasn’t impressed. A friend…

Joni Mitchell (with James Taylor) – California

I’m excited about this one. Yesterday, I shared James Taylor’s “You Can Close Your Eyes.” While searching for that tune on the streaming services, I found a version Taylor recorded with Joni Mitchell… …from her concert on 12/27/1970 at the Paris Theatre in London. The BBC recorded and broadcast that concert. Many years ago, I…

James Taylor – You Can Close Your Eyes

I saw James Taylor and Jackson Browne last night in St. Louis. They’re both 73… …and they both blew me away. Beautiful voices. Beautiful songs. Still bringing it. Say what you will about James Taylor. Some say he’s a bit too sugary for their taste. But I say a little sugar tastes good from time…

Paul Luc – Restless Mind

I love Paul Luc’s story. Born and raised near Pittsburgh. Played in a garage band in high school. Went to college and studied economics. Returned to Pittsburgh and got a desk job. Played occasional weekend gigs and even released an album. But that wasn’t enough. So, he woke up one day, went into work, and…

The Beatles – I’ve Got a Feeling

Sorry… My kids flew in the weekend before Thanksgiving. Then the holiday. Then the catch-up after the holiday. And before I knew it, I haven’t sent a Song of the Day in 9 days. Let’s get back to it. While relaxing over the holiday, I watched the new Beatles documentary (“The Beatles: Get Back”) —…

John Prine – Lake Marie

Yesterday’s email was all about John Prine. Todd Snider’s stories and song about him. One of those stories was about Prine dancing off the stage as he closed concerts… …with this… Today’s Song  Title: Lake Marie  Artist: John Prine  Album: Lost Dogs + Mixed Blessings (1995) YouTube Link:  youtu.be/vzCjQwt2rgI Here are the Playlists:   Spotify:…

Todd Snider – Handsome John

For many, many years John Prine would end most of his concerts with “Paradise.” Daddy won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County  Down by the Green River where Paradise lay  Well, I’m sorry my son, but you’re too late in asking  Mister Peabody’s coal train has hauled it away   But on his last tour,…

Chicago Farmer – $13 Beer

For the second night in a row, I spent an evening in the greatest room in St. Louis — the Sheldon Concert Hall. Richard Thompson on Thursday. Todd Snider last night. So much better than staying home and watching Bachelorette reruns. We’ll get to Todd Snider in a day or two. But first, I want…

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...
