This chapter begins with a short vignette from a 2011 show at the Villanova house, in Davis, which introduces the main ethnographic concerns of this chapter. It continues with a theoretical and ethnographic consideration of the physicality of do-it-yourself (DIY) house shows in the United States, followed by sections on recontextualization of sound and experience through place, and the subversion of normative spatialities at DIY house shows. After that, the chapter examines socio-spatial musical interactions at DIY house shows, and the relationships between DIY houses/venues, sound, and community. As it can be inferred from the previous section, DIY house shows in the United States have a particular character, which is not only distinct from other music scenes, but also from any other types of house concert scenes. Music scholars contribute to the discussions about the relation between music venues and musical and social practice.
