This Meetup's purpose is to help introduce music lovers to house concerts in the Austin, Kerrville, San Antonio, La Grange, Waco and surrounding areas. We also encourage our members to host their own house concert Meetups.

PLEASE HELP SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC AND SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT OUR GROUP TO LIVE MUSIC LOVERS, MUSICIANS AND ANYONE YOU THINK WHO MIGHT WANT TO HOST A HOUSE CONCERT AND ASK THEM TO JOIN OUR GROUP!!!<br>

House concerts are a great way to hear awesome music of any genre, except perhaps marching bands :-) .  Check out our house concert videos here: http://www.meetup.com/Austin-Area-House-Con...

Simply put, a house concert is a live music party where musicians you like play in your own home, or sometimes another non-profit venue like a church (strictly not as a proselytizing event though), or a recreation center or apartment clubhouse, for your friends and other meetup members. 

Attendees pitch in to pay the artist for their performance. The host gives the monies collected to the artist. House concert hosts host house concerts because they support and love live music, not to make money.

Many are pot luck and you decide if you allow alcohol (BYOB) or not. If you have a spare room, sometimes you might even want to put the artist up for the night. They may play for their breakfast the next day. 

You may even want to have an informal "picking circle" for your guests after the main artist performs. And although weekends are more common, you can host a house concert any night of the week as the artists are always looking to fill those off nights.

Whether you already host a house concert series and want to help build attendance, or want help hosting your own house concert, or just want to get out and hear fantastic music in an informal setting, or you are a musician who wants to play at a house concert and want to network, this is the Meetup group for you!

If you are hosting a house concert,  then you can post it here as a meetup.

If you want to attend a house concert, then the hosts will post them here. 

If you plan on attending a house concert that's not already posted here, then by golly, post it here!!! Just be sure to post a link to that house concert page or directions on how to RSVP to that house concert as RSVPing only to the meetup group page WILL NOT insure that there will be room for you to attend if they do not know you are coming. 

If you want to host a house concert, other hosts will be glad to give you suggestions on how to make your house concert a success and post it here. You can also check out our 'How To" forum at www.meetup.com/Austin-Area-House-Concerts/messages/boards/forum/14357972

If you're a musician, you can post your house concert gigs here, or perhaps allow discounted prices for members, or members who bring a friend.

This IS NOT the place to post your gig in a for profit establishment like a club or bar.

This IS NOT the place for a club or bar to post an event.

Inappropriate event listings will be deleted and the poster will be warned. Repeat offenders will be removed from the group.

As seating is limited at many of our events, no shows are greatly frowned upon. Members who repeatedly no show, or change their RSVP within 48 hours of the event will be dropped from this group. The third time will probably be their last time.

We would greatly appreciate you paying the dues at the time you join. You have a 30 day (from the day you join) refund policy on your annual dues if you're not satisfied.
