In partnership with MusicGNV, this series is held on Thursday nights every month. The line ups will include emerging bands, singer/songwriters, independent artists, and offer a diverse mix of musicians that are local or connected to Gainesville's music community.

On April 21 we are collaborating with the amazing studio Pulp Arts. They have curated four of the most exciting new acts in Gainesville for a night of indie excellence. rugh (recipients of the September 2021 recording grant), Leah Rando, Suddenly, and Noe Moore will put on a show you won't forget!

On May 19, we will be hosting our second Singer Songwriter Showcase! 10 artists. 10 minutes each. You'll get a taste of some of the best and brightest songwriters from different styles that this town has to offer!
