ABOUT
Living Room Shows are private shows hosted by fans in spaces such as, living rooms, basements, lofts, recording studios, yoga studios, bike shops, screen printing shops, clothing stores, coffee shops, cafes, churches, etc. For each show we try to find the best space based on the acoustics of the room, proximity to parking and public transportation, restroom access, available seating, and when possible ADA accessibility. We're trying to create intimate shows that will be a positive and memorable experience for guests and artists.

ADMISSION
Bring your PDF to the show (printed or on your phone). This PDF includes the address, parking info, and other details. Please don't share this info with anyone. In addition, your name will be on a list at the door. All tickets will be listed under the purchaser’s name. Groups of two or more must arrive with the purchaser (example: Jeff Lebowski +3). You just need to bring one copy of your ticket for everyone in your group.

No one will be allowed to enter unless their name is on the list at the door. No additional admissions will be sold at the door. You must buy admission here to get into this show.

SHOWTIME
Arrival time and showtime will be on your ticket. It varies for each show.

SEATING
Most shows are general admission floor seating. We'll mention on each PDF what kind of seating is available and if you should bring a cushion to sit on the floor or if a folding camp chair is ok.

IMPORTANT
These are intimate performances being hosted in a private space. It's not a party. Please be respectful of the performance, the hosts, their home and the neighbors as you come and go. By purchasing tickets you understand and agree that you attend a living room show at your own risk. We do our best to make sure each show is hosted in a place that can adequately and safely accommodate all guests, but you will be responsible for yourself and your own safety at-all-times. The performers, hosts, homeowners, Undertow, and other guests at the show will not be responsible for any injury or loss resulting from your attendance or any activities before, during or after the show. We'll work together with the host to make sure that any inappropriate behavior by guests is stopped, and if necessary, the host will ask uncooperative guests to leave. Please help us make this a good and positive experience for everyone so we can continue to do shows like this. Thank you.

Playscape Update

ItsOurs.jpg

UPDATE!

With the combination of the donations to our playscape fund from our amazing friends and family (that includes the many people we have met throughout the year and now consider friends) and our own contribution, we purchased the awesome ship playscape at the former in.gredients space. That means we are getting to reuse a wonderful part of the East Austin community here in Brentwood!

Installation will happen within the next few weeks. We have to pay to move the playscape, but this is a SIGNIFICANT reduction in costs from our previous plan of building a brand new playscape.

While the playscape is paid for, we are still seeking additional funds to build a perimeter, put in kiddie cushion wood mulch (or rubber mulch for an additional $1300), and add lights/seating.

We would LOVE and APPRECIATE your support! Read more about the project and donate at gofundme.com/playscape-for-brentwoodsocial.

Needing your caffeine fix?

Brentwood Social House has coffee!

There is a city-wide water boil notice but Brentwood Social House has coffee, tea, and chai! We have been up and running since Monday with all coffee-related drinks. This includes drip AND espresso drinks.

Our closed-loop water system allows us to turn off the City water supply and add bottled water to the tank that flows to all our machines. We don’t have ice, but we’re good with everything else!

We are also serving beer, wine, and our full menu.

We’re open until 9:00pm Thursday-Saturday and 6:00pm Sunday-Wednesday.

Playscape for Brentwood Social House

Playwood-Slider-2-946x532.jpg

As many of you may have noticed, our picnic tables are gone from the backyard area. Why, you ask? We recently learned that in order to have the outdoor seating extend into the yard area, we would need to increase the number of parking spots we have. Since a 2-story parking garage is not going to happen anytime soon, we thought this is the perfect opportunity to REALLY make Brentwood Social House a community space for all ages and install a playscape (YAY!) in that big empty area. However, we need your help to make this vision a reality. Please click on the link below to read more about the project. We would LOVE and APPRECIATE your support!!

Join the upper echelons for something bold, full-bodied, delicious, and also there will be tea! We’ll have a special menu that’s sweet as honey and spicy as Louisiana.

Coffeehouse Explorations (ed. 3) by discoveringatx.com

Coffeehouse Explorations (ed. 3)

Posted on July 14, 2017 by Kelly

The following blog is one of many in a set called #CoffeeHouseExplorations. Click the hashtag to see them all. I’m a teacher and I don’t like doing school work at home. I need home to just be for home. Since my KIPP campus is way out in east Austin, I pass by SO many cool places on my way home. I’m exploring them one at a time.

Today’s features include Brentwood Social HouseMonkey Nest Coffee, and Zhi Tea (not coffee, but close enough).

Brentwood Social House is a little house that has been converted into a coffee shop. They left the walls, all the rooms, everything. Now, there are tables and chairs in each space so there’s plenty of work space.  It feels like working at home! But your kitchen has baristas ready to fuel you up. They serve a bit more than coffee, including tea and small bites (like quiche). I also love their style. They have an awesome mural depicting the Brentwood neighborhood inside their hip black and white exterior.


Monkey Nest Coffee was an excellent find. They have a huge space with a ton if individual tables. It’s clear Monkey Nest was made for people do to work at. They also remind me a bit of Cuppa Austin because of their MASSIVE drink menu. They have everything you could want, and then some. Very impressed. They also serve little pizzas, sandwiches, everything you’d need to spend a very comfortable day working there.


Zhi Tea was another awesome find. Their location may seem out of the way (4607 Bolm Rd), but there’s quite a bit popping up around them! I plan to go back to visit SaTen, the Bento Kitchen Kiosk, Juice by Daily Greens, and a few others. Zhi Tea is a tea house. They have a ton of fresh, loose leaf tea to choose from. You can get it hot, iced, a whole pot, or as part of a tea tasting tray. If you like tea and tea tasting, you have to check this place out. They also sell loose leaf tea in little bags. I like the small bags because I feel like I rarely use all the loose leaf tea I buy.

Beer and Wine Are Here!

We are now selling beer and wine at Brentwood Social House.

A Notice on Parking at BSH

Protecting the residential character of Brentwood is important to us. We love being a part of this wonderful neighborhood and we want to be respectful neighbors. In an effort to work with our neighbors to create a safe space for residents, we ask that you do not park on or use McCarthy Circle (area indicated in purple) for turning around. There are many children who live and play in this cul-de-sac.

We also want to remind you that parking within 20 feet of an intersection or in front of a Yield sign (area indicated in red) is illegal. We would hate for any of our guests to get a parking ticket while visiting us.

Thank you for helping us be good neighbors!

Austin Monthly: Where to Eat in Austin Now :: January 2017

Austin Monthly: Where to Eat in Austin Now :: January 2017

FIVE RESTAURANTS WORTH LEAVING THE HOUSE FOR THIS MONTH
BY KIMYA KAVEHKAR  |  Published: January 27, 2017

Taco Bell Cantina
I am a food lover. I am not a food snob. We each have our hierarchy of fast food joints, and Taco Bell ranks highly in mine. When I learned the new Taco Bell Cantina on the UT campus serves alcohol, I made my way to the Drag as fast as I could. It’s the loveliest Taco Bell I’ve ever seen. Mosaic tile surrounds its semi-open kitchen. Through windows you can see exactly what the cooks/assemblers are doing in there. But, let’s get real, the star of the show is the booze. There are three flavors of slushy—margarita, fruit punch, and Mountain Dew Baja Blast (of course)—and you can mix in shots of vodka, rum, and tequila. For locavores, they serve Tito’s Vodka, Treaty Oak Rum, and Tequila 512.
2000 Guadalupe St.

Kemuri Tatsu-Ya
A lot of local food bloggers and journalists are saying that Kemuri Tatsu-Ya, from the team behind—you guessed it!—Ramen Tatsu-Ya, is one of the best restaurants to open lately. The Texas-Japanese small plates menu relies heavily on barbecue, and classics are given fun twists: takoyaki (fried octopus) serves as the base for Frito pie, and pecan pie is topped with an azuki bean whip. Adventurous eaters are encouraged to try the “squid marinated in squid guts,” but for something everyone will enjoy, the brisket and gouda “hot pocketz” and the “TX Butter” dipping ramen are divine. I’m still thinking about them three weeks later.
2713 E. Second St.

Brentwood Social House
I’m a huge fan of Great British Bake-Off. I’ve watched numerous seasons not really knowing what they were making. I guess I understood the concept of a Victoria sponge cake or a Bakewell tart, but I’d never tasted them—until I went to coffeehouse and cafe Brentwood Social House. They’ve got all the fancy British goodies, with ingredients shipped from England and Belgium for maximum authenticity. A personal favorite is the cheese pasty, which is a savory delight wrapped in puff pastry.
1601 W. Koenig Lane

Juice Society
For a quick and healthy working lunch, Juice Society has launched a menu of toasts, including avocado with pesto and alfalfa sprouts and spiced banana with almond butter, cinnamon, and bee pollen, both on local sourdough. They are rolling out more menu items soon, like raw pad Thai with spiralized zucchini in place of noodles, quinoa tabbouleh, and raw chocolate tart made with dates and avocado cacao. The food and drinks are delicious, but I’m a huge fan of the multitude of outlets, which make snacking on the go easy.  
1100 S. Lamar Blvd.

El Burro
Right next to Juice Society, and for a vastly different dining experience, there’s El Burro, from the team VOX Table. I’m still on the fence with how I feel about expensive Tex-Mex when cheaper and equally delicious options are plentiful in the capital city, but El Burro does have delicious food and cocktails. I ordered the beautiful (and very strong) Frida Kahlo made with rum, tequila, strawberry hibiscus and lime, which started the meal off on the right foot. Everything we ate—guacamole, cheese enchiladas, and chicken quesadillas—was excellent. The most memorable part of the meal was the guava dipping sauce that came alongside the churros. Hoping that a happy hour starts there with some discounted dishes.
