Could I possibly end up performing in St. Helens, Oregon, Everett, Washington, and Vancouver? (Edit: St. Helens is out, this trip.)
House concerts beat coffee shops hands down. Coffee shops are really a place to go practice, knowing that absolutely no one is listening.
But show up to someone's living room, where they've invited all their friends, and everyone brings something to drink and a snack, and you're the guest host of a very cool party. When the hat is passed, literally or metaphorically, even a few drachmas from each guest turns into more than I've earned in every coffee shop I've ever played in.
There's more than you really want to know about my house concerts at my tunehenge site.
