All Ages Show Options

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

As you may have heard, the Chestnut House has decided to cancel all shows for the remainder of June 2012, and who knows what will happen for July. Some of those shows may find another spot, but some may not. To try and help out those that are trying to reschedule their gigs, here’s a couple of places that may be able to help out if not already booked up:

Chestnut House Troubles

Monday, June 11th, 2012

From Alex at the Chestnut House:

ATTN Anyone who goes to shows at the Chestnut House and wants to see this place keep going.

We have gotten into some trouble with the cops recently about the noise. We are going to have to sound proof both front rooms asap.

If you enjoy shows going on please consider making a donation so that we are able to afford sound proofing material.

Since we charge at the door and to help with not getting in trouble with sound we may be forced to get a commercial license, if so that will also cost us a decent chunk of money to make happen.

We appreciate any help anyone can give. If you are able to make a donation please send it through paypal to

Also we have two new house rules that EVERYONE (no exceptions) are required to follow if they want to attend any shows at the house.

Absolutely no drinking/alcohol is allowed in or outside of the show.

If you come to a show here you MUST stay inside the yard (past the black gate) or inside the show at all times. We have a huge backyard and a back porch, no reason to ever hangout out front of the house.

Thank you for reading and helping! We appreciate it so much!

Chestnut St. Christmas party show

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Does anything else really need to be said after checking out the flyer? If so, here’s the info. Hopefully “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire” doesn’t translate to the house burning down after the show. /puns.


  • Frontier(s) – ex Elliott/Sounds like Elliott (No Sleep Records)
  • Xerxes – Hardcore/Screamo/Punk/Whatever (No Sleep Records)
  • Former Thieves (IA) – Basically Breather Resist reincarnated (No Sleep Records)
  • Lay Down & Die – Feedback drenched punk (members of Coliseum, Mountain Asleep, Xerxes)

Probably will do something stupid for this show. Like a punk xmas or some shit. Chestnuts roasting? (more…)
