Musicians have been touring for years — it’s just part of the profession. Incidentally, touring musicians have had us up, out of our houses and walking to various venues for most of our lives. But mellow-shimmer genius Will Johnson found a way to turn this practice on its head. He’s embarked on a Western States Living Room Tour, which is exactly what it sounds like. The moody-voiced Missouri crooner is literally playing in people’s living rooms up and down the West Coast, and he’s making a stop in Eugene this week to play at an undisclosed location. That’s the beauty of it — you gotta buy a ticket if you want to be able to find the place, lounge out and watch the gig; but for the intimacy of the whole affair, it’s absolutely worth it.
Will Johnson plays at MYSTERY LIVING ROOM THEATRE 3000 at 8pm Tuesday, April 16. Buy tickets and, subsequently, get directions via http://wkly.ws/1g8; $15.
