Live Music in Low Light

We wanted to create an intimate environment where people really listened and connected with each other, so we kept the lighting low. It started in a dining room, but since then we’ve set up shows in apartments, art galleries, living rooms, restaurants, small theaters, and even a 26-room historic mansion.

Past performers include The Low Anthem, Eef Barzelay, David Berkeley, Heather Maloney, Will Stratton, Fireships, Lo Fine, Winterpills, Kaiser Cartel, Luke Brindley, Native Run, Luray, Mark Schwaber, Dennis Crommett, State Shirt, and Matthew Larsen & The Documents.

Follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter and/or Instagram get news about upcoming shows and ‘where are they now’ type stuff from past performers.


State Shirt and Matthew Larsen & The Documents will embark on a #darkdiningroomtour across the U.S. this Spring 2016. We’ll have friends and past DDR performers joining us along the way.

Live looped understated synth pop from California that blends acoustic melodies with dreamy ghost-like harmonies. Quietly epic introspective indie folk piano with thoughtful instrumentation and lush harmonies from Massachusetts.
