Richard Buckner wants to perform in your living room, so are you gonna let him?

Richard Buckner wants to perform in your living room, so are you gonna let him?

Let’s cut to the chase: are you going to let Richard Buckner play in your living room? Maybe we’ve cut too quickly to the chase. Let me back up. Alt-country songwriter Richard Buckner is going on a West Coast tour this coming January. But he tires of all the beer-and-urine-soaked rock clubs that are so present in a musician’s life. Instead, he wants something homier, like your home. If you live in the state of Washington, Oregon, California, or Arizona, you can host Richard Buckner in your living room. Full submission information is available here, including an outline on venue requirements. Some of these requirements are fairly specific, so if you live in a one-room shack with a leaky roof, an elderly possum that just lives there who you’ve made peace with, a 12-inch TV in the corner that only gets one channel, and a deflated beanbag, you probably won’t be able to host this show.

To further support his recent release of Surrounded on Merge, Buckner is also going on tour in Europe this December. In his way of saying “Okay, I’ll play the game,” he’ll be playing traditional venues on this trip. Tomorrow night, in fact, he’ll be supporting Destroyer, who has some great things to say about the concepts of homes.
