Seeing a band play in a stadium? Not worth it unless you're backstage.
Seeing a band in a club? Closer, but still not quite close enough.
That's why we're flocking to Seattle Living Room Shows.
Held in private homes all over the city (with locations only announced by e-mail the day of the concert), these concerts are an incredible way to see some of the area's best musicians in ridiculously intimate surroundings.
Past performers have included Damien Jurado, Daniel Blue from Motopony, and Lemolo.
Even cooler, many of the sets are livestreamed to hospitals as part of the Melodic Caring Project, a local nonprofit that brings music to sick kids and teens.
Tickets sell out fast — how many people can you really cram into a living room? — so if you want in, book now.
Just keep your feet off the coffee table.
