CANCELLED: Fundraiser: Side Hustle Market

The Music Gallery presents
Fundraiser: Side Hustle Market
PWYW (Suggested $10)

So many great artists we know have side hustles – another creative avenue to generate income outside of music. With the value gap increasing and it becoming harder to make money from album sales, the modern artist has become a multi-hat wearing purveyor of all things homemade, crafty, delicious, and visual.

Our annual fundraising event is a day of community engagement: encouraging and celebrating musicians and music workers with side hustles. Local musicians/artisans will show off their wares while DJ David Dacks + more will spin their tunes. A silent auction, door prizes and other FUNdraising activities will round out the day. As always, proceeds from this event help us keep programming shows that pay artists what they’re worth.

If you’re a musician with a side hustle and you’d like to book a sales table, please contact
