Although performer spots are filled for the event, Sounds is still welcoming submissions of local art of all kinds to sell. Participating artists will receive 50% of the profits from their sales and food and beverages will also be available for sale. Tickets are $5 and are available in advance from performers or at the door.
Sounds is adding to State College’s live music scene by providing a variety of fun and alcohol-free late night music and art-centered events for community members of all ages. The organization currently holds music events in established venues, but aims to acquire a permanent venue where guests can hand out and enjoy a variety of music and art-centered events and activities.
Following two successful events held this year at Webster’s Bookstore and Café, and The Attic at the State Theatre, Sounds plans to begin offering monthly music-centered events in established downtown locations, with a goal of increasing to bi-monthly and weekly events.
Cleveland’s ultimate goal is for Sounds to have a permanent location with dedicated spaces for a café, studying, pool and darts, TV, house instruments to play, space for art projects, group study and gaming, a dance floor, and of course a flexible-sized stage featuring high quality sound. Other future aspirations are to have space for musicians to record, holding rock camps after school, and offering apprenticeships to learn how to run sound and lighting.
