The Bottle Rockets are looking for local living room to host a concert

If you’ve got the space they’ve got the songs.




I describe the Bottle Rockets as Drive-by Truckers with more humor and a ton less angst. You feel like drinking a beer with friends while listening to the Bottle Rockets, not a fifth of whiskey and contemplating the mistakes you’ve made as with the Drive-by Truckers. This description is said with nothing but love for both bands. I have a multiple albums of both. This story however isn’t about my off-cuff band comparisons, it’s about getting the Bottle Rockets to play in Richmond.

From the Bottle Rockets Facebook:

Hello friends! We’re looking for people to host Bottle Rockets Living Room Shows in October. These shows are hosted in private spaces. No stage, no sound system. Each show limited to 45-60 people. Please read details below and get in touch right away if you are in or near one of these cities and can host a show.

Thu Oct 6 : Baltimore MD
Fri Oct 7 : Richmond VA or Raleigh NC
Sun Oct 9 : Knoxville or Chattanooga TN

We’ll make this as easy as possible for the hosts. All you have to do is let us borrow your living room for about 3 hours, check names off the list at the door… in return you’ll get 5 additional free tickets for friends and our eternal gratitude.

Hit up that link if you think you can host. There are a bunch of sensible criteria, like don’t have neighbor who can’t handle you inviting 50 or so folk over. I’m hoping I hear about where this will go do down because I definitely want to see them live again. Also they’re dog friendly.
