Introducing The Lower Lair: an Immersive House Show at the Republic

The Lower Lair is premiering its very first party this weekend at the Republic. Get tickets here.

The Lower Lair is reimagining your experience with house music. For their premiere party this Saturday, a group of local DJs are banding together to unveil the latest series of shows to come to the Republic.

The Lower Lair describes itself as “a house party – refined.” For their first show on Feb. 29, DJ Concourse, WAYVZ and PasstheJeffrey are hosting. You can experience these local producers in a highly-curated, immersive lounge atmosphere.  

Missing Event Data

In a re-imagination of the Republic’s typical layout, all DJs will perform from the “lower layer” of the dance floor. Stylized, totally customizable lounge sections will surround the DJs. In addition to stylish seating, interactive art elements, themed photo-ops, specialty cocktails and “whimsically-witty” bottle service packages give you the opportunity to bring your party to a whole new level. 

In an email, the Republic says The Lower Lair was created to provide a sophisticated-yet-wild, refined-yet-fun environment that feels like a living room house party.

“We don’t think there’s anything quite like it, and we’ve had countless guests ask for something like this. So, we think it will be a hit, while also providing a platform to grow local house talent. We also hope that the Lower Lair will introduce New Orleans, a city that loves its heavy bass, to the more refined ways of house music.”

Artists of the Lower Lair

hometown house hero, DJ Concourse has been working hard in the studio and on stage over the past few years. In a town that is mostly run by heavy bass and riddim, the young producer works to differentiate his “soul-filled sound” that is more steady groove and less heavy party.

He just released a Lower Lair Mix especially for the premiere party yesterday.


Lafayette-based producer WAYVZ is all about the epic dubstep. He also celebrated the new decade with a new release. The hour-long mix was released to his SoundCloud earlier this month.


We don’t know much about NOLA-producer PasstheJeffrey, but we’re excited to see him take the stage with his fellow Big Easy musicians. His house track “Back Around” can be streamed from his Soundcloud.


Join the Lower Lair on Saturday, January 29.

The show starts at 11 PM. Get tickets quick!
