The Brahmsy Story

I'm a huge fan of live performance. My thing happens to be classical music, which is painfully hard to find sometimes, especially if you care about composers and sub-genres. Most music listings gladly lump together 500+ years of music-making into just "classical", with a few paltry events, while dozens of specialized categories exist for music of the past few decades (rock, pop, punk, rap, country, blues, reggae, roots, and so forth).

Brahmsy is different. Try searching for "baroque music". Or search for just "Mozart piano" concerts. Brahmsy knows the difference.

But classical music is my thing -- perhaps yours is something different. Brahmsy therefore tries to serve all the "niche" live arts. Dance, culinary arts, poetry, jazz, talks, local theater, tasting tours, you name it. If it's local, small, non-mainstream, and live, Brahmsy tries its best to know about it so that you can find it!

Brahmsy scours local universities, community centers, churches, local performance groups, and neighborhood venues for "small ticket" and "no ticket" performances. And individuals and organizations can directly submit their own events too.

Unlike other event sites, Brahmsy doesn't rely on ticket sales or social media to gather its listings. This means that:

  • Unlike ticket-driven sites, Brahmsy includes the many great events in your community that don't use a central ticketing service (or are free). These smaller, more intimate events are often the best!
  • Unlike social-driven websites, Brahmsy exposes smaller lesser known events on an equal footing with larger mass-appeal events, resulting in a fuller, richer, more diverse set of listings.
  • The result: other search sites miss the best events, the local shows in your community that don't have big marketing budgets or ticket sales but do offer the best chance to experience the magic of live up-close performance

Brahmsy finds and includes those local performances that other sites miss, the intimate venues that have front-row seats as a matter of course. But enough talk -- I prefer to let the quality and depth of search result speak for itself.

Why the name Brahmsy?

Because Bach, the singular greatest by an unfathomable margin, is sacrosanct to me. Brahms, on the other hand, I have no problem commercializing.
