The 9th Annual Listening Room Festival, which is sponsored by TrueFire, has been rescheduled for November, but festival artists will be streaming live performances on March 27th, 28th, and 29th to give festival fans an alternative way to hear their music as a festival preview.

#LRFest, part of the Listening Room Network (LRN), is a unique festival that promotes concerts in living rooms and other unique, non-traditional spaces. Dozens of house concerts were scheduled around Tampa Bay, as well as a showcase at the Palladium Theater in St. Pete. The showcase is the largest and most public event of the festival and draws 500-600 attendees.

The upside is that now you don’t need to be a member of the Listening Room Network and don’t need a special invitation to hear this year’s festival talent. The schedule is as follows.
