UNIQUE CONCERT VENUE FOR MUSIC LOVERS

We converted part of a warehouse in St. Louis
into an intimate soundstage.

We fill the room with sofas and easy chairs.
We book great artists.
We invite you to join us.

The intimacy and comfort of a house concert
+ the larger capacity of a warehouse
= a great night of music with room for more guests
and better pay for great artists who deserve it.

SONG OF THE DAY

Ashley Campbell – Remembering

NEW ARCHIVES: We’ve posted every Song of the Day email on our website here: wareHOUSEconcerts.org/#songoftheday  ***Now for Song of the Day… In an mail last week (Willie Nelson w/ Francine Reed), I mentioned Glen Cambpell’s final days with Alzheimer’s. See that email in the archives here: wareHOUSEconcerts.org/willie-nelson-with-francine-reed-funny-how-time-slips-away/ Last night, I watched the movie “I’ll Be…

Gram Parsons – In My Hour of Darkess

Gram Parsons would have turned 75 today. He was only 26 when he died at the Joshua Tree Motel in September 1973 — soon after recording his second and final solo album Grievous Angel. That album was released after his death, and sales were modest. Parsons didn’t achieve much commercial success, especially as a solo…

Willie Nelson with Francine Reed – Funny How Time Slips Away

I heard from several people who really love Francine Reed (she was featured on yesterday’s song with Lyle Lovett). So let’s bring her back for an encore. But first, some background… Willie Nelson released his first album, And Then I Wrote, in 1962. That album included a song he wrote called “Funny How Time Slips…

Lyle Lovett – What Do You Do / The Glory of Love

Lyle Lovett celebrated his 64th birthday yesterday. My favorite album of his? Lyle Lovett and His Large Band.  I saw him live after he released that album in 1989. With his Large Band. And with Francine Reed. Before joining Lovett in the mid-80s, Reed sang with Miles Davis, Stanley Jordan, Smokey Robinson, Etta James, and…

Meat Loaf – Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad

Jim Steinman passed away in April. He would have turned 74 today. His name doesn’t ring a bell? Well… he’s the songwriting brains behind Meat Loaf. He’s the guy who wrote: You’ll never find your gold on a sandy beach  You’ll never drill for oil on a city street  I know you’re looking for a…

The Black Keys – Howlin’ for You

Happy Halloween. Go howl at the moon and enjoy… Today’s Song  Title: Howlin’ for You  Artist: The Black Keys  Album:Brothers (2011)  YouTube Link: youtu.be/Zs3cyuXSFII 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 

Emily Scott Robinson – Let ‘Em Burn

John Prine left us last year. But his independent record label lives. In 1980, Prine’s contract with Asylum Records expired, and he moved to Nashville. Rather than sign with another label, he decided to start one of his own. Oh Boy Records was born. Oh Boy’s first release was a red vinyl Christmas single with…

John Hiatt – Gone

There’s an old legend about the night they burned Atlanta down. After his army set fire to the city, General William T. Sherman rode out of town, turned his horse around to take one last look at the city in flames, and then turned his back on Atlanta and marched to the sea. I’ve heard…

Bob Dylan – You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go

Those who love Dylan have heard the debates about his best album. Hard to choose. But if I must, I’ll choose “Blood on the Tracks.” Same thing with choosing a favorite track from that album. But if I must, I’ll choose — at least today — this one… Today’s Song  Title: You’re Gonna Make Me…

Dan Auerbach – Waiting on A Song

You may know Dan Auerbach as the singer/guitarist for The Black Keys. In 2009, Auerbach released his first solo album, and he has released two others since — all while sticking with The Black Keys. Today’s song is the title track from his most recent album. Enjoy… Today’s Song  Title: Waiting on A Song  Artist:…

Old 97’s – Every Night is Friday Night (Without You)

Happy Friday. Here’s a Friday song — one that rocks. It’s by the Old 97’s Enjoy… Today’s Song  Title: Every Night is Friday Night (Without You)  Artist: Old 97’s  Album: The Grand Theatre, Vol. 1 (2010)  YouTube Link:  youtu.be/wxraWZvvHfI (Official Video) 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 

Tom Petty – Yer So Bad

Tom Petty. DOB: October 20, 1950. Gone too soon. So many great songs. Here’s one: Enjoy… Today’s Song  Title: Yer So Bad  Artist: Tom Petty  Album: Full Moon Fever (1989)  YouTube Link:  youtu.be/WdRViFCvvUo (Official Video) 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 

Little Feat – Spanish Moon

I lived on the east coast in the late 80s and 90s. Tower Records was a huge music retailer in places I lived. They published a great music magazine, called Pulse, that was free for the taking when you visited the store. My favorite Pulse feature: “Desert Island Discs.” If you were stuck on a…

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats – Shoe Boot

Yesterday, I was in Kansas and tipped my cap to Kansan Joe Walsh. Today, I’m in Colorado. So from the long list of great Colorado artists, I choose Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats… …and the opening track from their 2018 album “Tearing at the Seams.” Enjoy… Today’s Song  Title: Shoe Boot  Artist: Nathaniel Rateliff &…

Sheryl Crow (with Joe Walsh) – Still the Good Old Days

Sorry today’s email is late today. I’ve been driving all day — from Missouri to Colorado. Most of the day in Kansas. So now that I’m settled at my hotel, I’ve chosen a song featuring a Kansas native… Joe Walsh. I didn’t pull this one from his catalog. I grabbed one from Sheryl Crow’s 2019…

Paul Simon – Under African Skies

Paul Simon is 80 today. Back in 1987, soon after he released “Graceland,” he performed a concert in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe’s neighbor South Africa was still under apartheid rule. Nelson Mandela was still in prison. Joining Simon that day were singer Miriam Makeba and jazz artist Hugh Masekela. Both were South Africans who had not been…

Todd Rundgren – Dust in the Wind

Yesterday’s featured artists (Hall & Oates) and today’s (Todd Rundgren) all came from Philadelphia — where soul music ruled. Close your eyes and listen to yesterday’s song (“She’s Gone”) and you’ll hear its Philly Soul roots. Or better yet, go find Lou Rawls cover version and you’ll hear it. Then listen to today’s song. Same…

Daryl Hall & John Oates – She’s Gone

This makes me feel old: Daryl Hall turns 75 today. I grew up in the 70s and 80s — when you couldn’t spin through your radio dial without hearing Hall & Oates. By the time I heard, “You Make My Dreams Come True,” for the 8-millionth time, I was kind of sick of Hall &…

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...
