From Sep 14 – Sep 29, the fourth edition of the Live in Your Living Room NYC Festival will be held. The Live in Your Living Room Festival like last year consists of ten concerts. The festival is part of the Live in Your Living Room NYC-NL Connection, international house concert network Live in Your Living Room has been gradually building on now for six years. That has resulted in three successful editions of the Live in Your Living Room NYC Festival in the past three years, with concerts at great locations such as The Chelsea Hotel, the hip 255Canal Art Gallery, a number of venues like Piano’s, The Sidewalk Cafe, Googie’s Lounge, Northeast Kingdom. And – of course – we were guests in lots of living rooms at private homes ranging from studios to villas, and from Harlem to Brooklyn.
Like in previous editions of the festival, this year’s promoted Dutch band iET is an very talented, emerging act. Also, iET performed in NYC earlier for example they did a show in The Living Room. At home, iET was support act for R&B/neo soul legend Macy Gray in Amsterdam’s Paradiso. iET’s new album will be produced by nobody less than Russell Elevado (D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys). It is expected to be released somewhere later this year. In fact, during the time that iET will be in NYC for the Live in Your Living Room NYC Festival, they will work with Russell to finalize the album.
Each concert, NYC-acts will be co-billing iET. For the whole schedule, please see attached the full program of the Festival.
Concerts usually start at 8.00 pm, some of them at 7.00 pm. At Sunday 23 September 2012, we will have a “high-tea” edition that will start at 4.00 pm. At the house concerts, suggested donation at the door is $10 p.p., included are refreshments. Concerts at some of our venues are free, as your tips will be appreciated.
