The folks at Spirit organized an outdoor merch market to support artists, promoters, and music venues. A year since the COVID hit means it’s been a year since many of these venues and performers had to stop performing. Spirit tries to bring the music community together for mutual support and to exchange ideas about “T-shirts, records, pizza and whiskey”. The event will be held outdoors to comply with COVID safety regulations and will feature vendors such as Arie Cole, J. Malls, Jordan Montgomery (driving during Black Records) and Phat Man Dee. The event will take place on April 11th, if it rains April 18th as a backup date.
