First Performance, First Look

We are thrilled to partner with rock paper scissors to host the very first event in our beautiful new Lotus venue on Saturday, November 3.  The evening includes two separately ticketed events, both of which will benefit year round multicultural programming in the new Lotus venue.

Lotus Festival alum and former Bloomingtonian Moira Smiley kicks off the evening at 7:00 p.m.  A singer, composer, and a musical polygot, Smiley’s ability as a vocal shape-shifter redefines her voice — which has been heard on feature films, BBC, PBS, NPR, and on over 60 albums. Smiley will perform alongside Bloomington musicians Steve Mascari and Dave Weber.

Stick around for the Dance Party led by Indy’s DJ Kyle Long. As host of WFYI’s “Cultural Manifesto” and a writer for Nuvo, Kyle explores global music’s relationship with more familiar American styles of music, like soul, hip-hop, and jazz.  The dance party will get started at approximately 8:30 p.m.


This event is made possible by our generous sponsors: Hanapin Marketing, rock paper scissors, inc.Sweetwater, and Under Consideration.
