Saturday night concert-goers made their way to the Hearth Realty Group office at 460 Bloomfield Ave in Verona, a venue revealed to them only shortly before the show, to see live music from three local musicians. This event, hosted by real estate agent Marika Autrand, was organized by Sofar Sounds, an international platform that strives to bring the magic back to live music by facilitating secret gigs and intimate concerts in unique venues worldwide.
Marika first went to a Sofar Sounds show in Montclair in April, and loved the intimacy of seeing live music in a cozy space with a group of only fifteen to thirty other concert-goers, along with the mystery of a secret gig at a location only disclosed shortly before the event. (Sofar guests at first only see the town the show is in and get more details about the location as the concert approaches). Seeing Sofar Sounds as a kind of Air BnB for concerts connecting local musicians with local venues willing to host, Marika immediately knew she wanted to host a Sofar show and was excited to bring one to Verona. A large group gathered at the Hearth office for music from indie singer-songwriter and comedian Evie Joy, the duo Visen, and singer-songwriter Rory D’Lasnow. Guests enjoyed the talented musicians and relaxed vibe as well as being able to talk and joke around with the musicians and hear stories about the songs.
