The narrow Chapin street home that was transformed into a full scale production of live music (Tennis System performed), dancing, and mixology (of the alcoholic variety) is only round two for DCs latest bloomer in pop-up style events.

Sofar Sounds, a shorthand for the multi-city brand Sounds From A Room, is precisely what the moniker describes: two to three bands delivering intimate performances in non-traditional spaces, with all of the technical and elevated production value of a club setting– and intimacy is the word I would use to describe Saturday’s show.

Upon arriving, I got that awful feeling that comes at first glance of a party much too crowded: I will never get a drink here. But I followed the flow to the kitchen, and once there I had a drink in my hand without even asking, and it was a bourbon based punch worthy of the Gibson, created by a familiar fellow named Lukas Smith.

Ora Nwabueze is the mastermind behind DCs chapter of Sofar and has another edition in the pipe for March 5th, location and line-up TBA, and says that DC is going to be “the flagship city of this concept.”
