Reading

Gnome Hutch
A woman-run basement venue off the beaten path in Reading, PA. Heavy/loud/fast music catches my attention, but anything weird warrants consideration (zero tolerance for pop-punk, emo, or cover bands, sorry). We like to dance here, even though the space is compact. Bands can park in a private lot & sleep here on guest beds & couches. The house is not ramp accessible & well-behaved dogs may wander by. A middling quality backline is available, & I make a bootleg recording of every act's set. All donations go to traveling bands. To book a show or ask about upcoming events- bleederscollective [at] gmail [dot] com or text 4[eight]4-6[eight]2-88[one]1 to reach Melanie Gorguny.
