House concerts are an old and current way of hearing music–socially, in a comfortable place without too many distractions. At Fifth Street, concerts are upstairs in a beautiful room with great sound.
The music is acoustic (unamplified instruments and voices), generally traditional American or international, of all types. Chair seating and folks are welcome to bring food/drink to share.
Reservations are necessary to assure you a seat and made by calling (510) 525-9248, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Doors open at 7:00, music at 7:30. Cost is $20; all proceeds go to the musicians.
