Special Education Teacher, Reporter, Promoter, Songwriter, Knox County Schools, Blank Newspaper, Southern Cities, From the Living Room
I believe in community. I work to build community in Knoxville through my day job teaching Special Education at Central High School, producing my From the Living Room house concert series, my work reporting on the local scene for Blank Newspaper and the music I make with my band Southern Cities. Every day we have this chance to build our community through collaboration. I believe your next best friend or favorite band or great experience is right around the corner if you're willing to put yourself out there.
Building Artistic Community... From The Living Room

Luke Brogden spent parts of his first decade of adulthood working for national concert promoter AC Entertainment, playing in local bands like Southern Cities, writing about music for publications like Blank Newspaper and throwing together house party shows. The house party shows proved the most fun and artistically rewarding, and he started his own series called From the Living Room. Finding new artists, locations and other series to collaborate with has given him the opportunity to be a part of Knoxville’s part of a national house concert movement.
