I almost didn’t post this, as I quite like it being something of a secret, but it’s too good to keep quiet about.

I first discovered Hauskonzerte around eighteen months ago, when a friend called me to ask if I fancied checking out Alexi Murdoch in a loft in Au:

It was one of the most beautiful concerts I’ve been to. Everyone sat on rugs on the floor, surrounded by dimly lit sixties lamps. The audience is super nice, and everyone hangs around for a beer after the gigs.

Since then, I’ve managed to get to a few more Hauskonzerte shows. Munich band Soki Green played in an atelier near Hauptbahnhof, with Holland’s I am Oak:

Most recently, I headed to Fraunhoferstr., to Ruby, to check out German singer-songwriter Max Prosa:

He has something Bob Dylanesque about him. His lyrics are fantastic (my favourite song of his is Cafe Noir), and the atmosphere’s always so lovely and friendly.

The Hauskonzerte people know music. They’ve invited the likes of Angus and Julia Stone, I am Kloot, Young Chinese Dogs, This is the Arrival, Herman Dune, Wallis Bird, Boy and Junip.

So if you love music, and love intimate, lounge concerts, become a fan of their Facebook page, and keep an eye out for concerts – you have to send an email (and be fast about doing so), and you’ll hear more about the location a day or two before.

  1. Such an amazing tip! I can see why you we’re tempted to keep it a secret, but thank you for sharing.

  2. Oh man, I heard a song by Max Prosa on tv many months back and I thought, this kid has a Bob Dylan thing going on! Since then, the dude and I wanted to see him. And I love the Alexi Murdoch song you posted, I’ve never heard of this artist before and it’s really awesome! Thanks for sharing this—- I don’t live in Munich but when I travel there I’ll try to schedule it around one of these shows!

  3. this is too cool – I’ve been checking out your blog everyone once in a while – just stumbled across this post, turns out we went to the same (very small and intimate) Alexi Murdoch show! It’s definitely one of my very favourite Munich moments so far, but then most Hauskonzerte are among those. really something special what the guys are doing there.
