Term: Kvartirnik.
Kvartirnik is a live music concert held in a private apartment. Kvartira means flat or apartment in Russian. These were widespread in 1970–80’s in the USSR, almost all of them had illegal and underground status. The situation when rock bands weren’t able to play in clubs and bars, because of the official government policy, pushed the young generation to find a new way of communication with fans. Due to space limits in apartments, boundaries between musicians and an audience were erased and a concert usually transformed to a friendly party. During these live concerts a lot of sound tape records were done, copies were being distributed illegally as well. Kvartirnik was a crucial phenomenon in alternative music culture in 70–80s and played a significant role in rock music development in Russia.
