An empty stage, photo by Neil Ruud The Attendance Office is a lil' house on L Street that hosts some pretty serious events.

In 2009, the Attendance Office was referred to as the "The Hospice of French Ruud Solace" but was later retired due to trying too hard to be clever.

The house's current name comes from a sign from one of the occupant's high school attendance offices that now hangs over the door to the backyard. Ash Reiter and her band. The Shants. Retrospect. MountShout.

The Attendance Office has hosted, among other shows, the following:

• March 25, 2011

Youth Cole & the Rats Pregnant

• October 10th, 2009 Capybara Poppet

• January 10th, 2010 Your Yellow Dress All Blood Nellie Fitzgerald Neil Ruud

• February 27, 2010 (show relocated from The Greenhouse) MountShout The Shants Ash Reiter

• May 1, 2010 Lions, Bats, and Bears Retrospect Nellie Fitzgerald R&S

The Attendance Office has also hosted numerous themed parties to breathe some life into California's Central Valley (e.g. themed Lady Gaga, Iron Chef, etc.).

The house is also part of the KDVS house show network, though maybe not as active as its brothers and sisters: Robot Rocket Residence, Dam Haus, Villanova House, Bomb Shelter.
