“Songs from a Room” from Sofar Sounds Philadelphia creates an intimate experience between artists and their audience.
A decade ago, a genre-shifting concept was born that would rock the world of live music as we know it. Birthing an intimate platform for artists and listeners alike, Sofar Sounds has pioneered a novel way to bring the two together like never before. Beginning across the pond in London in 2009 Sofar began booking shows at various venues such as coffee shops, houses, and stores, but with a twist. This show would be a secret to the guests as far as the act, genre, or location pushing those who dared to cross their all-too-familiar genre lines and open up their minds to new ideas and sounds. Each show consists of three different artists all with three different flavors, immersing each guest in a sea of sound that is uninterrupted by distractions typical of today’s concert scene.
Since 2011 the Philadelphia region has been a part of this innovative idea adding numerous new musicians, comics and many other creative acts each month. To join in on the evolution, visit SofarSounds.com, pick your neighborhood to discover and a date that fits your schedule. They even have ‘secret,’ tribute and holiday-themed shows throughout the year with last Halloween’s show taking place in a graveyard.
