Hidden Gems: Artists helping create a new generation of artists

This city loves a good fundraiser but few rarely rise to the level of excitement like one planned for this Saturday night at a tiny bar within the North Monroe’s budding warehouse district. 

Billed as “Hidden Gems,” this event seeks to raise awareness as well as your spirits (since it is the weekend after all) with a night of live bands, DJs, and art for the benefit of our local The Crescendo Foundation—a Grand Rapids nonprofit that provides affordable music lessons for kids ages eight to 16.

For the low cost of $10 (remember, it is a fundraiser) you will be able to enter this multi-level bar for an out of this world art experience with a diverse line up of music with local and guest artists.

For those looking to time their arrival with their favorite act’s appearance, here is the schedule available at this time:

8:30 p.m. - Sandra Effert with Patty PerShayla

9:30 p.m. - Jesse Ray and the Carolina Catfish 

11:30 p.m. - DJ NEGLIGENCE (of Exposure Therapy)

12:30 p.m. -  DJ dynja (Detroit)

In addition, guests will have a chance to purchase works from artists like Angelea Torralva, Esan Sommersell, or Clock in the Sky art by Kit Clock.

And while we know folks have a lot of options to consider when choosing a fundraiser, Hidden Gems is shaping up to be one of those “don’t miss it” art events of the season. Scencesters beware, this one is eclectic by design and fresh/chill, so leave attitudes at the door for the best experience.
