Be Transported throughout the Earth at Gaia: August in DC

6 Aug

Unique Art and Music Collective Blankets DC in August

I’ve never had as hard a time catching up with an event promoter as I have catching up with Nico Laget of Asahra Music. But he’s got a lot on his plate with the movement that is GAIA starting this weekend in Washington at the Fridge in South East DC.

I can see why. Gaia, which means Earth, is scheduled for seven drastically different days of soulhousefunkrockelectromusicartpoetrydance scheduled for August 6, 7, 8,13, 14, 20, 22.

Gaia is being described as an Oasis for the Arts: Music/Dance/Theater/DigitalArts/Fashion with an eco-conscious, community enriching feel. It’s not a reality show, not a club, not a place to be seen, but definitely not a vibe to miss. I can’t tell you any better than GaiaDC can show you, so, check the video below.

The $10 cover for the multidimensional art show is pennies. Go support art, people! Doors open at 9pm tonight.
