Our body is adobe. Music is our soul.
Built in the late 1940s and 1950s, the adobe house of Louise Lincoln Kerr is a funky, unexpected space to hear live music in the heart of Scottsdale. The brainchild of a trailblazing violist and composer, ASU Kerr is a place for adventurous music lovers to discover fearless and surprising artists in a relaxed, eclectic space.
Rooted in Louise’s tradition of inviting musicians and guests to relax and enjoy her picturesque Southwestern home, we invite you to hang out, discover something new and embrace the unexpected.
A visit to ASU Kerr is an unexpected, eclectic concert experience rooted in the traditions of Old Scottsdale. Arrive early, sip a cocktail on our patio while you discover the hidden architectural touches throughout the property—from our beer bottle door made by the workers who built the house and studio in the ‘40s and ‘50s to our historic carved sugar pine doors, to the variety of retrospective art on our studio walls. You’ll experience the Kerr style of Southwestern hospitality in this performance space, filled with the trailblazing spirit of the salon.
Where are you?
Getting here is half the fun! Because ASU Kerr has a longer history than the local pavement and predates everything around it, using our street address in GPS may or may not put you on the right path. We’re not located directly on Scottsdale Road and we’re a bit hidden, like the best secret places are.
Please view the map to the right for the correct (and only way) to drive the last few yards into our location. Google Maps will get you here properly. Call the box office if you need some help.
