Sean Rowe has been playing a string of house shows over the last few months. And along the way the Troy-based musician been writing about them on a blog. A clip from one of the entries about two recent shows in Pennsylvania:
I think one of the big things that makes these house shows really stand out is just how oddly cool it is to show up at a near stranger's house and set up musical camp right there in the living room. It's like I'm some kind of a bearded salesman, going door to door but instead of vacuums I'm selling all these little feelings that come attached to songs. Friends...you're keeping me in business!
It's interesting to read about the people who've been booking these small shows, inviting him into their homes. (And sometimes they greet him with beer.)
In April Rowe is playing a venue just a bit bigger than a living room: The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. The April 12 show's a benefit for the Rensselaer Land Trust>. Opener is MaryLeigh Roohan.
Yep, AOA is a media sponsor of the April 12 show.
