Host Califone in Your Living Room This Spring

500x500xcalifone.jpg.pagespeed.ic.lr7eME9VZR.jpg

Califone's Tim Rutili

Great news for anyone who has a large living room, basement or loft, has chill neighbors, and likes the band Califone.

The Chicago-based experimental folk band, led by Tim Rutili, is embarking on a living room tour of North America this spring in anticipation of the band's upcoming follow-up to 2009's album/film soundtrack All My Friends Are Funeral Singers. Rather than playing small clubs and venues, the band is soliciting offers from anyone interested in hosting the band in their own home. Califone has a Chicago date scheduled on May 17 and is looking for a good host.

Those interested should be able to accomdoate 40-60 people with ample parking. Tickets will be available in advance for $20. Find more details and guidelines here.

The deadline for submissions is February 26.

I realize I am way late on this, but I noticed that Califone had an open date on May 5th between their Columbus show and their Baltimore shows. I live in DC and have the perfect place for them to play. Please let me know if there is anyway I could host them on that day. They are among my favorite bands. You can also reach me by phone at 301-922-1845.
