We’ll make this as easy as possible for the hosts. All you have to do is let us borrow your living room for about 3 hours, check names off the list at the door… in return you’ll get 5 additional free tickets for friends and our eternal gratitude.

Here’s how it works.

1. You have a house, loft, small gallery, studio or other private space that can comfortably and safely host 50-75 people. A place with a big living room, finished basement or other interior space would be ideal. There needs to be street parking, parking garage or public transportation nearby and your neighbors should be cool. It would be a huge bummer if someone called the cops because of all the extra cars and people coming to your house. You probably shouldn’t do this if you live in a small apartment with a bunch of uptight neighbors or a cranky landlord. Be realistic on how many people your place can hold. We need to know how many tickets we can sell in advance. Sorry, we can’t do these shows outside.

2. Ticket price will be $25. Everyone must buy tickets in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door. There will be no reselling or third-party tickets sales. All tickets sales are direct to fans from Undertow. Limit 4 tickets per person. We want everyone to have the same chance of getting tickets.

3. We’ll provide the host with a list of everyone coming to the show. The host won’t have to deal with any money and will only need to check people off the list as they arrive. We ask guests to arrive between 7:00-7:45pm. The shows start at 8pm and we ask everyone to be out of your space by 10pm.

4. The host gets 5 additional free tickets for the show. If you have other friends beyond your 5 guests who want to come to the show you should direct them buy tickets on-line.

5. Your home address will not be published on the web and will only be given to people who purchase tickets.

6. The shows will promoted on our websites, Facebook and Twitter and word-of-mouth.

7. We’ll need your help to spread the word on your Facebook and Twitter too. We’ll create a Facebook event for each show and make you a host of the event so you can easily invite your friends (Thank you!). Remember, please don’t post your address. The address only goes to people after they buy tickets. We need to keep the location private so people don’t try to show up and pay at the door.

8. You don’t need any sort of sound system. Some kind of ambient lighting like a lamp on coffee table, floor lamp, or overhead lights with a dimmer to help create a cozy mood and a small table or counter top where David can sell some merchandise after the show.

9. You don’t need seating for everyone. If you have a bunch of chairs, great! But most shows are floor seating and we let guests know they should bring a cushion or pillow to sit on during the show.

10. There will be no opening acts on the living room shows.

if interested please follow these steps:


1. READ THIS: We’ll need you to sign this when we confirm the show.

2. email bazan@undertowmusic.com this info:
- a. Your address.
- b. A few photos of your living room.
- c. Please put “Bazan Living Room Show” and the name of your city in the subject line.

3. Sit tight and we’ll get back to as soon as possible if we can book the show at your place.


After we have the dates and locations sorted out we will announce the dates and tickets will go on sale at undertowtickets.com.

Stay tuned.

Bazan Monthly: Volume 1

July 1, 2014

in News



So. We’re trying something new. We’re calling it Bazan Monthly: Two New Songs on the 1st of every month for the next five months, which makes ten. Those Ten New Songs will collectively be known as Volume 1. Each month’s pair of New Songs will be available as a digital download or on 7″ Vinyl (which also comes with a digital download). The Digital Download will be immediately available on the 1st of the month and the 7″ Vinyl will be shipped to you a few weeks later.

Now, some of you are asking “Can I pay for Bazan Monthly Volume 1 all at once and automatically receive each month’s New Songs in my “E” and/or “Snail” mailbox?” and the answer is Yes. Absolutely. You are welcome to do so until the end of July at which point that option will disappear from the Undertow Store.

You are, of course, welcome to buy them one installment at a time anytime you like. But keep in mind: while we aren’t limiting the 7″ Vinyl to a specific number of copies we will only continue to press them until the end of november. Which means if you want any or all of the 7″ Vinyl you will need to order before then. The Digital Downloads will be available for all eternity.

At this point others of you are asking “Does calling it ‘Volume 1′ mean there will be more Volumes in the future?” Yes. That is precisely what it means.

OK then, to recap:
– 2 new songs each month July-November 2014 (Volume 1)
– Vinyl + digital or digital only
– Buy individually each month or pay for all 5 installments in Volume 1 up front.
– Immediate digital downloads, the first edition vinyl ships in mid-September.
– All vinyl pressings stop December 1, 2014, so order before that.

Also, you can stream each month’s songs for free around here somewhere to see if you even dig ‘em.

Well, that’s about it. Thank you so very much for buying music and going to shows. I couldn’t continue to make music the way I do without your support.

Best Wishes, Dave
