“THIS IS ABOUT COMMUNITY” – GROVE STUDIOS
Just before the year ends, I wanted to check back in with Grove Studios’ efforts to set up a cooperative rehearsal/gallery compound for local artists/musicians, with a connected performance space/listening room.
The region’s performance venues has been a big focus of my 2017 writings for The Current. Very recently, we posted about the good news of The Bling Pig’s new owners assuring no change in live music programming for the foreseeable future, despite some worst case scenario-type concerns of it being turned into something like condominiums.
Grove is working towards setting up a compound of individual shipping containers, rented specifically to artists and musicians, assuring they have a dedicated physical resource (space) to create or rehearse.
