The folk band King Cardinal is doing a "house tour" this June and needs a place to perform when they roll through Illinois. 

Reddit - My band, King Cardinal, is planning a house show tour through the midwest in June with our pal, Sawmill Joe. We would absolutely love to set up a house concert in Illinois! Joe, Texanna, and I will be traveling this leg of the tour by ourselves which would be perfect for an intimate show. If you or anyone you know has a living room or backyard we can play some music in, message me. No experience hosting required and at no cost to you!

A little about us.... In the past two years King Cardinal has toured with Ben Sollee, Darlingside, David Wax Museum and performed at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival troubadour competition. Sawmill Joe is a staple of the Denver music community and has had one of his songs covered by the Lumineers!

Have I heard of King Cardinal? No. But that doesn't mean that I wouldn't want these guys rocking out in my living room. I'm not a big fan of country music but the 25 seconds of the YouTube video I watched was pretty good.

I'm about 80% sure this isn't a scam. If you agree to host these guys and they rob you blind I claim no responsibility. That being said. This actually seems like a pretty cool idea if you're hosting a party in June and want some good free live entertainment.

You can get a hold of these guys through their website or connect with them through their reddit post.
