What is LIVE LETTERS?
LIVE LETTERS was started in May of 2012 and is a passion project by a couple of Minneapolis music lovers, Sara Montour and Steve Korf. We document live music around Minneapolis and also host small concerts in Sara's loft in Minneapolis.
What's an 'Evening With Friends'?
An Evening With Friends is a concert series we started shortly after launching our site. Each EVENING WITH FRIENDS is hosted by a musician that then hand-selects other songwriters + friends to join them for the evening. We start the night with a set from the host, then all of the musicians spend the rest of the night on stage together, playing songs in a round robin style concert. These nights are amazing for being introduced to new artists, watching collaboration between musicians, and being part of something truly unique.
What's 'LIVE LETTERS presents:'?
Our "LIVE LETTERS presents:" shows are more similar to your average concert, with full band sets.
So... it's a house show?
In a lot of ways, yes, but we can accomodate more people than your average house show and we also bring in a PA and someone to run live sound, so the shows sound amazing while still maintaining the intimate feel of a house show. We're hoping to bridge the gap between a house concert and a traditional venue.
