Homestage is a community of people trying to nurture the already-blossoming house-show scene in Washington, DC. We are supporting the years of great work hosting live in-home and alternative-space entertainment by people like the Paperhaus and the Electric Maid. Our aim is to make great things happen outside the traditional venue spaces, including music, art, film, and salon-style discussion. There are many obstacles for individuals trying to host excellent entertainment in non-traditional spaces. With a little help from our friends we can overcome those obstacles and make DC a force for creative risk-taking opportunities.
