The Gathering: Intimate concerts centered around music and authentic relationship stories

Sofar Sounds & Coffee Meets Bagel Present The Gathering
At CMB, we pride ourselves on being more than a dating app, which is why we launched offline experiences for our community. To keep up with the immense success we’ve seen in the past, we’ve partnered with Sofar Sounds to create The Gathering: a series of monthly intimate concerts centered around music and authentic relationship stories.
Our offline experiences have showed us how the powers of shared, non-traditional dating experiences transcend technology, and that’s exactly why we are excited to have Ruthie Lindsey join us as the host for each Gathering event. As an influential speaker, author, podcaster, and activist, Ruthie Lindsey is an emerging authority on shaping interpersonal relationships!
Each gathering event will be shaped around a particular relationship and dating-themed narrative held at ever-changing, secret venues around New York. (Don’t worry! You’ll get the address from Sofar Sounds on the day of the event with your ticket.). On top of the three performances presented by the Sofar Sounds artists, Ruthie will talk about her personal experiences with relationships of all kinds, and even engage the artists and audience to share some of their most interesting experiences.
What Are Sofar Sound Events?
Sofar Sounds reimagines the live event experience through curated, secret performances in more than 400 cities around the world.
Founded in London in 2009, Sofar brings guests and artists together in unique locations, without the distractions that plague other live events. Sofar shows begin as a secret: guests sign on for three unnamed performances at undisclosed locations, hosted by community members in everyday spaces — from living rooms and rooftops, to retail stores.
Through the transformation of these spaces into captivating venues, Sofar serves as a platform for artists to connect with engaged audiences in cities around the world. Sofar invites guests to discover new artists, spaces, people, neighborhoods and cities, whether at home or abroad, creating an inclusive and accessible global community where people make genuine connections.
Why Are Sofar Sounds and Coffee Meets Bagel Partnering?

We curate those experiences (their shows and our matches) for the benefit of our communities. Our partnership is a natural union of two brands fostering genuine connections all over the world!
