But (ware)HOUSE concerts lives on.

On Saturday, October 8, our home will be the historic Link Auditorium in the Central West End (4504 Westminster Place | Saint Louis, MO 63108)

Fairport Convention – Who Knows Where the Time Goes

During his concert last night in St. Louis, Richard Thompson sang the praises of Sandy Dennis. She was a British folk singer who collaborated with Thompson’s band Fairport Convention. Thompson noted that many considered Dennis the greatest and most influential British folk singer of her day. Fairport Convention was the first (and one of many)…

Richard Thompson – If I Could Live My Life Again

I just got home from seeing Richard Thompson at the Sheldon Concert Hall in St. Louis. Brilliant. When touring paused, he made music in his home studio. He released the “Bloody Noses” EP in July 2020 and the album “Serpent Tears” in May 2021. Here’s one from Bloody Noses. It will remind you what a…

Don Gibson – Oh Lonesome Me

Neil Young writes almost every song on every one of his albums. But on his 1970 masterpiece “After the Gold Rush,” Young slipped in one cover. It’s by Don Gibson, who scored a top-10 hit in 1958 with a jauntier version of the same tune. Young’s reinvents the song. His cover version is a dirge.…

Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins – The Big Guns

I heard this one on the radio today and remembered how much I like it. From Jenny Lewis’ first solo album way back in 2006. Today’s Song  Title: The Big Guns  Artist: Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins  Album: Rabbit Fur Coat YouTube Link: Here are the Playlists:   Spotify:  Apple: 

Dan Bern – Estelle

The first time you hear Dan Bern, you may think he’s just some Bob Dylan knock-off. But don’t sell him short. Sure, he sounds a bit like Dylan. But Dan Bern is an original. His first (self-titled) album is one of my favorites. Not one of my favorites by Dan Bern. One of my favorites,…

Conor Oberst – Barbary Coast (Later)

Conor Oberst is not the guy I turn to when I’m looking for a feel-good, lift-me-up kind of tune. He’s full of angst. But the songs are beautiful. The one today comes from his solo album, Ruminations (2016). The album is a gem. Stripped down acoustic songs, recorded in Oberst’s hometown, Omaha. A year later,…

Crazy Horse – I Don’t Want to Talk About It

In yesterday’s email (Neil Young’s “Don’t Be Denied”), I mentioned guitarist Danny Whitten. He was a founding member of Crazy Horse. Most know that band for backing Young on several albums and tours. But Crazy Horse also made its mark without Young. Their debut album “Crazy Horse” is a great one — especially the songs…

Neil Young – Don’t Be Denied

Happy Birthday, Neil Young (76). In 1973, one year after he released Harvest, Young embarked on a 60(+) date tour with a new backing band, The Stray Gators.  The shows began with an acoustic set full of familiar material from Harvest and other well-loved albums. But Young was already tired of rehashing his hits. So…

Darden Smith – Angel Flight

It’s Veteran’s Day.  15 years ago, Darden Smith played a concert at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center near Ramstein Air Base in Germany.  He assumed he’d have nothing in common with his audience. He’d never spoken to a man in uniform.  But backstage, he struck up a conversation with a Marine. And they discovered they had…

Alicia Stockman – Lonely Together

Alicia Stockman is a Utah-based singer-songwriter. I heard about her from Mary Bragg (who performed at the outdoor concert we hosted at Laumeier Sculpture Park in 2019). Stockman released her new album, “These Four Walls,” last week. Bragg produced the album and performs on it. Lots of great tracks. Here’s one… Today’s Song  Title: Lonely…

Brian Wright and the SneakUps – High Rise

Yesterday, I shared John Hartford’s “In Tall Buildings.” I think Brian Wright was thinking about Hartford’s tune when he wrote the song I’m sharing today. Today’s song comes from Wright’s great 2020 release Lapse of Luxury.  I already shared another track from that album called “Patrick’s Crossing” Hartford’s tall-building song is old-timey, folky —…

John Hartford – In Tall Buildings

Thinking about Glen Campbell last week got me thinking about John Hartford. Hartford wrote “Gentle on My Mind.” Campbell made it famous. Hartford came from St. Louis. He went to a fancy private secondary school — the kind of place that breeds lawyers and doctors and business executives. There’s nothing wrong with that. It just…

Hayes Carll – Help Me Remember

Yesterday’s Song of the Day was “Remembering,” — Ashley Campbell’s love letter to her father Glen Campbell as he descended into Alzheimer’s. Song of the Day subscriber Mark Herich replied with an email and a recommendation. He wrote: “…regarding Glen Campbell’s struggles with Alzheimer’s, if you have shared that difficult journey with a loved one…

Ashley Campbell – Remembering

NEW ARCHIVES: We’ve posted every Song of the Day email on our website here:  ***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: 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…

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 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. 

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. 

(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. 

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 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.
