Listen Locally Downstairs launched in 2017 as a monthly, happy hour performance series in our cool “Urban Hipster” Studio space, Downstairs.
The series features a new local act each month in a wide variety of music genres and aims to bring you closer to the music in a laid-back setting where you can relax, enjoy a drink with friends and support local musicians.
The Studio itself is at the heart of what makes the series so special. The 120 seat gymnasium-turned-multifunctional space lends to a more intimate and interactive experience than our Music Hall; artists and audience can engage in a conversation. We could easily showcase our Listen Locally Downstairs artists in the Music Hall – but the Studio lends to an extra sense of intimacy with the artists. Neither space is better; each one offers a totally distinct experience.
Forget the backstage pass – come on Downstairs!
Listen Locally and Listen Locally Downstairs are supported by RAD, The Opportunity Fund and PNC McKinney Charitable Trust.
The Studio entrance is located on the side of the building at the accessibility ramp.
