About five or six times over the last few years I've had the chance to play totally acoustic -- no amplification at all. A couple of times it was accidental (power failures), a couple of times intentional (MetroPerforms, one club in NYC). Everytime, it was really something special. People are so unused to hearing music without electronic intermediaries that they can be really knocked out when it happens.
Does anyone know of any venues where this happens on purpose? I'd really like to do some more of this type of thing, but am not sure where to turn. I suspect there are some house concerts, but haven't looked into that much recently.
Your advice, comments, war stories are welcome.
