It is of course measurable how much Shows I Go To has affected the community of Orlando. There are tangible numbers and statistics; fans reached, tickets given away, amount of shows gone to …
But, in a very intangible sense, there is no way to quantify how good it feels to meet a ticket winner outside of Gringos Locos, downtown before the line winds out the door, and shake their hand, give them a hug, listen to their story, and then meet their eyes across the bar at The Social and smile because you’ve had a minute hand in giving them a memorable evening with music.
We live for this shit.
We want to celebrate with you because although, we have some big things on the horizon, it’s time to give thanks (and fucking party) with our friends & fans in the city we love.
Is there a more appropriate day than Friday, April 20th to throw such a shindig?!
You’ve already been thinking of reasons to tell your boss that you would, uh, er … like 4/20 off please … AND NOW WE’VE GOT YOU’VE COVERED.
Orlando’s newest premier and cool ass down venue, Blackstar is gracious enough to help us host such an auspicious evening.
This is a donation-based show, pay what you want to show your support! <3
Party includes ticket giveaways, free food, cake, koozies, hugs, and music.
Music will be provided by the ever lovely, unreal rock’n’roll tones of Evan Taylor Jones, the cool, cresting wavy vibes of Gary Lazer Eyes, the FIRST EVER live performance & introduction of interstellar super group U.F.O., the folky sound that stole our hearts — Mountain Holler, the Queen of Noise herself FoxForce005, & special guest tba! 😉
We’re hugging you right now and charging you up with the most positive show energy.
See you at the show (the shows I go to)!!!!
SIGT 5 Year Anniversary Party by Sarah Schumaker.
