Chuck Cleaver, Lisa Walker and John Erhardt of Cincinnati Indie Rock heroes Wussy are embarking on a unique tour in November. The trio will perform "living room concerts" across the Midwest Nov. 9-23.
The musicians are working with a company called Undertow, which helps set up intimate living room shows hosted by artists' fans at their houses (often, as the name suggests, in their living rooms) or other home-y locations. A limited number of tickets are sold and, along with being able to have a more up-close-and-personal experience with fans, artists also receive a greater cut of the ticket proceeds than they would on the usual club/festival circuit.
The Undertow website says that the performers receive 85 percent of ticket income. Undertow has booked living room shows for artists like The Bottle Rockets, Jeremy Enigk, John Vanderslice, Mark Eitzel, Mike Doughty, Richard Buckner, Samantha Crain, Vandaveer and many others.
The Wussy trio tour begins Nov. 9 in St. Louis, then they'll travel to places like Minneapolis, Chicago, Ypsilanti and Cleveland, before wrapping up the dates Nov. 23 in Columbus.
Cleaver, Walker and Erhardt will perform in Cincinnati on Nov. 22, but, as is standard for all Undertown concerts, the location is a secret until you purchase a ticket. If you'd like to do that, you should act quickly — like all of the shows on the tour, there are very limited tickets remaining (as of this writing, just 23 to be exact).
