Introducing The Hallowed Hall!

Introducing The Hallowed Hall, a new way to experience music in Downtown Bloomington. We’re collaborating with Half Hazard Press to create a 50-seat listening room within the walls of their historic space. We’ll be coordinating the talent, and our first guest will be Miles Nielsen on October 11th! Reservations are limited and are selling fast – don’t wait to snag yours and join us as we embark on this new venture! [RESERVATIONS]

What is The Hallowed Hall?

The Hallowed Hall is a space for music. An intimate listening room inside the historic walls of Half Hazard Press in Downtown Bloomington. Performances at The Hallowed Hall are all-seated shows limited to 50 guests. All reservations include a limited edition show poster designed by Half Hazard Press!

Where is The Hallowed Hall?

The Hallowed Hall is located at HHP in Downtown Bloomington, Illinois. You might already know where it is! If you don’t, no worries– the exact address will be provided to you via email after your purchase. Performances at The Hallowed Hall are exclusive to reservation holders, which is why we do not publicize the address.

How does it work?

When you purchase a reservation, your name will be on the guest list at the door for the number of reservations you purchased. All sales are final and close at 12pm the day of the show (or earlier if sold out). There are no at-the-door sales the day of the performance. Reservation transfers are allowed with 24 hours notice (email for transfers). If part of your party is arriving separately, have them give your name at the door. Doors open one hour before the performance begins. (Please do not arrive earlier than one hour prior to performance time as the artist and sound engineer need time to prepare for the show.)

The featured act will perform one set. You may peruse the Half Hazard Store and purchase merchandise before and after the performance. Each reservation includes a limited edition show poster designed by Half Hazard Press.

What about beverages?

All performances at The Hallowed Hall are BYOB. No accommodations such as cups or ice will be provided. Pack it in, pack it out! Consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors is prohibited.


Please be respectful of the artist and limit socializing to before and after the performance. Disruptive/talkative guests may be asked to leave. You will not receive a refund in the event you are asked to leave.

I have another question!

No problem! Feel free to email The Hallowed Hall at with additional questions! We’ll get back to you right away.

This December: New Video!

Three years ago, a first draft of a holiday song took shape. The chorus had a simple request: “Sing with me.

Let’s come together this December.… Continue Reading
