A Live Show,  A Concept,  A vibe,  A forum for community cross-pollination.  A dozen musicians, artists, DJs, and performers from diverse disciplines gather.  Many have never shared the stage before.  Some will be meeting for the first time ever. Other stage guests may arrive unexpectedly.  We place them all on stage as an ensemble with a full concert sound system - and we ask them perform a completely unrehearsed show!!!  The audience provides the inspiration.  A special vibe nucleates between all witnesses to the night.  And the energy begins irradiating - transferring from one element to the next to the next to the next to the next to the.....


We're celebrating not just our own collective's one year anniversary, but also the many positive things that have taken shape in the local scene and community at large.  Our collective's goal has been to expose the immense potential of large cross-pollinating network of creative people that exists in our urban core. It's a community that includes artists, small businesses, cultural venues, public forums, creative spaces, community groups, grassroots organizations, young professionals, high-tech junkies, and countless individuals with unbound  energy and an eye to the 21st century. Join us in celebration of the new vibe that's enveloping our city.
