Speakeasies are concerts featuring student musicians from Brown and RISD.  These smaller, more intimate shows are an opportunity to showcase student and local musical talent.  Last year, Speakeasies were held in Granoff, The Whiskey Republic, and the Underground where bands like Hugh Manatee and Clyde Lawrence performed.  All genres are welcomed.  Auditions for Speakeasies are usually a couple weeks prior to shows, which come around about four times per year.  Check in for updates on future auditions and Speakeasy dates and details.
