Intimate pocket concert series hosts event with film and live music.
In 2008, Daniel Morrow and Steve McDavid cleared out the common area in a suite of offices upstairs in the oldest building on the Square, at 1109 Van Buren Avenue, set out chairs, and hosted an intimate pocket concert of live music, dubbed Music in the Hall. Soon the shows would be filmed for posterity and released on DVD and online. Some of the sessions would branch out of the hall to Bottletree Bakery and people’s homes—and, most recently, to venues in Chicago.
MITH will celebrate its fifth birthday with a special event Wednesday, November 6 at the Lyric Theatre in Oxford.
Doors open at 5:30, with food available from Proud Larrys’. “We’ll start the show on the big screen at 6, and in addition to highlights from our first five years, we’ll have some great content from the new additions to the Oxford music/film scene, Oxford Sounds and Oxford Sessions,” Morrow says.
Live music will begin at 7 p.m. with the Red Thangs.
“We’ll mix live music with memories and highlights on the big screen for the rest of the night,” Morrow says.
The schedule for the evening will be:
6:00: Highlights from MITH, Oxford Sounds, and Oxford Sessions
7:00 The Red Thangs
8:00 Julie Lee
8:40 Hinge Dance Company
9:00 Rocket 88
Tickets for the show are $10, and may be purchased at one of the following links:
Purchase via Gumroad (quickest option if you don’t have a Paypal account)
Seating will be limited as Morrow will be configuring the Lyric to have a smaller, more intimate capacity.
For MITH lovers who can’t make it to the show, there will be a multi-camera live stream available on the Music in the Hall website, presented by the Yalobusha Brewing Company. The stream is also made possible by Tre Amici.
