If you've never experienced hearing talented musicians perform in a small, intimate environment, you are in for a treat.
House concerts are a growing trend across the country, where people invite friends and neighbors into their homes for an up-close concert experience. And there are many house concerts being held in and around the Santa Monica area that you can check out - you just need to contact the host and ask to be invited.
Churches and non-profit community groups around Santa Monica host occasional coffeehouses that feature traditional folk musicians and other acoustic artists as a way of bringing the community together.
In addition, live acoustic music can be heard in many listening rooms and small theaters in and around the Santa Monica area. Restaurants and cafes in the area sometimes also host nationally touring musicians.
