House Concert Forum
This forum is for artists who are doing (or are learning how to do) community-based house concerts. It's a place for us to gather, ask questions, share ideas and resources, and get inspiration. We're glad you're here! Please note that this forum is moderated manually, so there will be a delay between you making a post and it going live. On the plus side: no spam. Thanks for your patience! ** NOTE: there is a glitch with this forum at the moment, which causes some page loads to display a message that you are banned. You are not banned! Reload the page a time or two, and it should load properly. Sorry about this; we'll fix it when we get time.
