Our original (ware)HOUSE home has been converted to -- get this -- an industrial warehouse.

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)

The Highwomen – Crowded Table

Background for today’s song:  My wife’s family has a farm in south-central Missouri. There’s a house with a porch that overlooks a gorgeous Ozark valley. On the porch is a table where family, friends, old guests and new have gathered for endless nights — great food, great conversations, great memories.  We were there a couple…

Bruce Springsteen – Into the Fire

9/11/2021. 20 years since THE 9/11. Bruce Springsteen reunited the E-Street Band and released “The Rising” in July 2002. 15 songs. 15 different characters trying to make sense of the senseless, declaring their love for those lost, searching for hope and fortitude, honoring fallen heroes. I love this album. The second track is Today’s Song…

Natalie Hemby – Time Honored Tradition

Happy Weekend. Yesterday’s song: Travis Linville’s “I’m Still Here,” co-written with Natalie Hemby. She’s up next… Natalie Hemby was one of those unknown legends around Nashville. She wasn’t out front. She was co-writing most of the time — one great song after another — for artists you know. She had a solo album, but she…

Travis Linville – I’m Still Here

Travis Linville is the only artist who has appeared at the (ware)HOUSE more than once — May 2018 and June 2019, plus a special appearance last month in my backyard. And he has been one of the most prolific, entertaining online performers during the pandemic. When I began to shelter in place and work from…

Shawn Colvin – Tenderness on the Block

I got lots of great feedback re: yesterday’s song of the day (Warren Zevon’s “Keep Me in Your Heart”). So…let’s keep the Warren Zevon thread going. His 1978 album “Excitable Boy” is a classic. Shawn Colvin covered one of the tracks from that album on her 1992 album “Fat City.” That cover is… Today’s Song…

Warren Zevon – Keep Me In Your Heart

The great Warren Zevon was only 53 when he died due to mesothelioma on this day in 2003. After he was diagnosed in 2002, Zevon hit the recording studio to create one last album. That album, “The Wind,” is a beauty. Most of the songs are NOT about his illness and the inevitable end. The…

Buddy Miller & Jim Lauderdale – It Hurts Me

Another birthday today, September 6. Buddy Miller turns 69. In 2012, Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale made the album “Buddy and Jim.” Here’s a sad song from that album… Today’s Song Title: It Hurts Me Artist: Buddy Miller & Jim Lauderdale Album: Buddy and Jim (2012) YouTube Link (Video): Here are the Playlists: Spotify:   Apple: 

Loudon Wainwright III – Suddenly It’s Christmas

It’s Loudon Wainwright III’s 75th birthday today. Let’s celebrate with one of his funny songs (he has many)… Today’s Song Title: Suddenly It’s Christmas Artist: Loudon Wainwright III Album: Career Moves (1993) YouTube Link (Official Video): Here are the Playlists:   Spotify:   Apple: 

Tom Waits – (Looking For) The Heart of Saturday Night

Happy Saturday. Seems like a good day to share a Saturday song.   I first heard this when Shawn Colvin covered it (great version, worth checking out). But Tom Waits’ original is the one that earns a spot on the playlist. So without further ado, here’s… Today’s Song Title: (Looking For) The Heart of Saturday…

Aaron Lee Tasjan – Computer of Love

Yesterday’s Song of the Day was Aaron Lee Tasjan’s “Memphis Rain” from his 2016 album “Silver Tears.”  Today, more ALT — this time from his February 2021 release “Tasjan! Tasjan! Tasjan!” I described “Memphis Rain” as hugging Hank Williams, Roy Orbison, and other ghosts of Nashville past.  Tasjan recorded today’s song in Nashville, but you…

Aaron Lee Tasjan – Memphis Rain

Welcome to Game 1 of an Aaron Lee Tasjan double-header… One Tasjan tune today. Another by him tomorrow. Two in a row. I like Aaron Lee Tasjan that much. I chased his booking agent for two years before we made a date for Tasjan at the (ware)HOUSE. We announced the show, and sold out in…

Mary Gauthier – Your Sister Cried

I began yesterday to read Mary Gauthier’s new book, “Saved by a Song: The Art and Healing Power of Songwriting.”  Part memoir, part artist’s manifesto, this book is earning rave reviews, and I’m loving it so far. Gauthier is one of my favorite songwriters. But (how’s this for irony!?) the Mary Gauthier track I like…

Shannon McNally – Black Rose

I’ve been thinking about music, and how much I miss it. COVID silenced most live music, including (ware)HOUSE Concerts. Concerts will be back at the (ware)HOUSE, I’m just not sure when. Until then, I’m going to share songs with you. Beginning on Thursday, I’ll send daily emails with the (ware)HOUSE Concerts Song of the Day. This…

Sarah Potenza – Worthy

Before the world shut down, I booked Sarah Potenza to play at the (ware)HOUSE. We had to postpone that March 2020 concert (we will reschedule). But when (ware)HOUSE Concerts were on hold, Sarah Potenza remained busy — including a stint on NBC’s America’s Got Talent.  Today’s song of the day is the one she performed…

Paul Thorn – It’s Never too Late to Call

I saw Paul Thorn at Delmar Hall here in St. Louis last week.  Great concert, featuring lots of songs from his fantastic new album “Never Too Late to Cry.”  That album’s title track is today’s (ware)HOUSE Concerts Song of the Day. The song’s about Paul’s sister, Deborah. Before she died in 2018, Paul used to…

Tom T. Hall – Tulsa Telephone Book

I was on Twitter the other day and saw a post that said Tom T. Hall was twice the songwriter Bob Dylan is.  And the crowd went crazy. Some cheered loudly. Others booed and hissed.  That’s how I learned that Tom T. Hall died earlier this month. Turns out that Hall-v-Dylan debate has been raging…

Introducing the Song of the Day

Hello (ware)HOUSE Concerts Friend,  I’ve been thinking about music, and how much I miss it. COVID silenced most live music, including (ware)HOUSE Concerts. Concerts will be back at the (ware)HOUSE, I’m just not sure when. Until then, I’m going to share songs with you. Beginning on Thursday, I’ll send daily emails with the (ware)HOUSE Concerts…

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.
