SouthEnd studio hosts intimate concert series

Years ago Charlotte's Jason Hausman was one of the musicians that played the monthly gallery crawl openings at the gallery/coffee shop that I managed. So it's fitting that he's now bringing live music back to the location, which houses Hot Sake - the sound design studio where he creates film and commercial music (and other sounds you hear in documentaries, advertising, and on the web).

Hot Sake LiVE - an extremely intimate acoustic concert series - kicks off Thursday with Aly Tadros. The Texan songwriter and classical guitarist also plays Evening Muse's late show on Saturday for those looking for a more traditional concert experience. Hot Sake LiVE is more like a house concert without the trappings of home (although you may encounter a dog or a falcon). Seating is limited to 25 and tickets are already gone (contact Hot Sake in case of last minute cancellations). All proceeds go to the artist and shows will be recorded in HD for webisodes broadcast on Hot Sake's website.

Tadros is a globetrotting musician whose travels to exotic locales like Spain, Egypt, Mexico, and Turkey inform her songs which are marked by haunting melodies, finger picking, and a smoky voice. To find out more about her intelligent, sultry sound and new album "The Fits" click here.

If you aren't one of the lucky 25, tickets to her show at Evening Muse are $8-$10 and are available here.
