Where is it?

The Parlor Room
32 Masonic Street
Northampton, MA 01060
(413) 341-3317

The Parlor Room is right in downtown Northampton at 32 Masonic Street, next door to the Woodstar Cafe. You can’t miss it; it looks like an old brick one-room schoolhouse, but, like a clown car, holds a lot more than it seems like it should. The record label offices are in the back, but the shows are out front (kind of like a reverse mullet! All business in the back, party out in the front).

What is it?

It’s Northampton’s new artist-and-audience-friendly listening room/performance space. It’s also closely connected and run by the folks at Signature Sounds Recordings, one of the world’s premiere record labels for folk/roots/americana/indie/rock, home to such artists as Chris Smither, Lake Street Dive, Caroline Herring, Winterpills, Josh Ritter, Amy Rigby, Erin Mckeown, Kris Delmhorst and many, many more…

Is it handicapped accessible?

Yes, we have a rear entrance with a ramp. Unfortunately, our bathrooms do not fit a wheelchair. Please let us know you’re coming, so we can make your experience as enjoyable as possible. We will often ask you to come before doors open to make sure you are seated comfortably.

Will there be any food or drink?

BYOB, baby (wine & beer only)! Plus, pie and beverages by The Florence Pie Bar in the back. State St. liquors is right around the corner for all your alcohol needs.

Parking?

Street parking, in town.

Is it all ages and general admission?

Yes, and yes. Seating is first-come, first-serve.

What time are doors for the shows?

Doors open a half-hour before showtime. If its a 7pm show, doors are at 6:30. 8pm show, doors at 7:30. The only exception are 9pm shows, where doors open at 8:45pm.

How does the ticketing work for shows?

You can buy them online on this site, or you can visit the venue and offices at 32 Masonic St, Northampton, MA and buy them there, weekdays from 12-4pm.
*Please call ahead if you are coming from out of town, as our schedule can change without warning.*
NOTE: Tickets can be purchased over the phone using a credit card with only a $1/order transaction fee.
All tickets are usually WILL CALL, which means there are no physical tickets–your name(s) simply go on a list that is checked off at the door as folks come in. (Note: If you order online there is an option to print-your-own tickets).

If none of these ticketing scenarios are options for you, contact help@signaturesounds.com and we can figure something else out.)

Do you only do music there?

Actually, we’re open to all kinds of events and ideas, from theatrical events to pop-up stores. Contact us below!

Is there a recording studio there? Someone said there was.

Nope. Maybe in the far future? The Signature Sounds label, however, is associated with a studio (which is it’s own thing), and it’s down in Pomfret, Connecticut. See more about it here.
