Freedy Johnston to kick off the Living Room series at Hard Rock Cafe

Freedy Johnston will be the first artist featured in the Hard Rock Cafe's "Living Room Series" next Thursday, June 9.

The series of shows aims for a more intimate atmosphere than is generally the case at Hard Rock's events, stripping away most of the trappings of a rock show, and putting the artist front and center. As in, right in front of you. It's a surreal take on the house show, when it's put on by a big money venue.

The concerts will take place in the Lennon Room - a recreation of the living room of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Manhattan apartment, down to some of the original furniture and a smattering of memorabilia - and is definitely planned with just die-hard fans in mind. 

Singer/songwriter (and dog enthusiast?) Johnson, best known for his mid '90s alt-folk hit "Bad Reputation," has in the intervening years cultivated a reputation as a "songwriter's songwriter," releasing a steady flow of biting, incisive albums.

Tickets for the show can be purchased here. No other artists have been announced yet in conjunction with the Living Room Series.
