In this episode of Sounds of Eau Claire, we spoke with Nate Sorenson, a native of Eau Claire who threw house shows in his mother’s basement for well over a decade, about the influence he hopes his DIY venue has had on the house show scene in the area, as well as his thoughts on the musical revitalization Eau Claire is currently going through. Special thanks to Nate Sorenson for participating in the project.
