Last Friday we had an exhilarating finish to The State’s crowdfunding campaign. This weekend promises to be even more thrilling with a full line up of zany events and memorable experiences starting with First Fridays tomorrow.
Early in the evening Pop-Up Art Shows will be out front showcasing the work of local artists. Rumor has it there might be some live music too! Stop by to check them out as well as the First Friday happenings at Idle Hours & South Bend Brew Werks. The Brew Werks will have dog biscuits made from spent grain created in the brewing process (cool!).
You can also pick up tickets to our 2nd First Fridays After Dark show. This time we are sounding a musical note with a concert featuring Chicago-based Zigtebra at the first stop on their national tour. Let’s be sure to give them a hearty South Bend “hello!” and help them get the tour started with a bang! Local artists Bailey Williams, SPACESHIPS, and La Republica will be accompanying Zigtebra to create a diverse line up of innovative sounds. Alongside the Downtown DOGtown we are also permitting well-mannered and leashed dogs into The State for the first (and potentially last) time. Don’t miss out on this unique experience. Tickets are just $8 ($1 off with student ID) and available at South Bend Brew Werks or at the door.
Saturday brings the much anticipated inaugural showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show at The State. This event needs little introduction and will include the fantastic group Help Me Mommy who will not only be providing the shadowcast for this show but helping us to develop our own local cast so we can make this a South Bend tradition once again! There will be two shows, both with the shadowcast, one at 9 p.m for those that want or need to get to home early and the traditional midnight showing. Tickets are almost gone for the midnight showing and we are expecting a sell out. You can get yours before the show online 9 pm & midnight and at South Bend Brew Werks. Survival kits will be available at the show for $2.
There’s still lots of prep work to get done so I better get to it. See you at The State this weekend!
