From June 23 – Aug 21, the team behind In Sheep’s Clothing will host a series of dedicated listening sessions four nights a week at Neuehouse.
After more than a year of forced isolation, creating spaces to share experiences with friends, family, and our local community seems more important than ever. We truly miss the listening sessions we were able to share at the In Sheep’s Clothing hi-fi bar in the Arts District. Our desire has always been to make a place to share music and build a community around the ceremony of deep listening.
Since shuttering the bar in March, 2020 we’ve been patiently waiting for another opportunity to share music with everyone. That time has arrived. We’re excited to announce that starting on June 23rd, we’ll open the first of many popup listening experiences. We’ve partnered with Neuehouse Hollywood to transform their penthouse floor into a dedicated listening space with the intention of once again creating moments around shared listening.

The indoor room will be designed for dedicated listenings on a top-tier hi-fidelity sound system constructed by our friends at Commonwave hi-fi. The outdoor environment will provide a casual hangout space with cocktails, wine, and food.
Dedicated listening sessions will be hosted by ISC staff along with members from our extended family in the analog space — tastemakers from vinyl digging communities, the hi-fi world and music-focused businesses. Each night will offer different programming around classic albums, artists, musical movements, and audiophile equipment/pressings.
As was tradition at the ISC listening bar, all sessions will focus on full album sides. Before each program, guests will fill the seats of the indoor listening space and will be encouraged to stay for the full duration of the recording. New guests will be allowed to enter after each session.
