THIS PAST WEEK AT IMURJ, WE HAD A LOT OF GREAT EVENTS FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY. HERE’S A RUNDOWN OF WHAT YOU MISSED!
Local Jam featuring The Kids Downtown
For the first time, the Tuesday Night Local Jam featured a monthly rotating house band to host the event! The Kids Downtown are the house band for the month of June. Tre’ Mars (vocals) helped lead the event while musicians collaborated on stage, many of whom had never played with each other before. You can catch The Kids Downtown on Tuesday the 18th for the last Local Jam in June!
The Geb: “Ordinary Lives” Album Release Party
The Geb held their album release party for their first album, “Ordinary Lives” on June 8th. The album was recorded at Imurj Studios. Featuring performances from Stephen Munoz, Zoa Black, and The Geb themselves, all ticket proceeds from the event went to benefit the arts programs at Ligon Middle School.
Red Hat Afterparties
After a concert at Red Hat is finished, the party doesn’t stop! Just walk two blocks north to Imurj to find a great afterparty featuring similar artists. On June 7th Kong Must Dead, Foxy Moron, and Unaka Prong were the featured performers after the Lake Street Dive concert. If you missed the energy-filled crowd that night, check out upcoming afterparties for the following concerts: Vampire Weekend (June 21) and Slightly Stooped (June 22)!
