We're just two weeks out from the kickoff party of one of Columbia's finest festivals. The sixth annual Indie Grits Festival's official opening party takes place Thursday, April 19th in the Grand Hall at 701 Whaley starting at 7 pm. Prepare yourselves for a small sampling of what's to come throughout the glorious eleven days of festivities this year as we start the festival in true Columbi-yeah fashion.
Hometown DJ and WUSC Station Manager Will Flourance as well as Brandon from Izms of Art will spin dance music off the ever-amplified walls of 701. Guests will join celebrated chef of the city, Scott Hall, as he plays host to fancy fare that is South Carolina cuisine at its finest-a bar full of tempting tastes all flavoring the most comforting of comfort foods: Grits. You'll see a cash bar in place to keep you hydrated and in truly celebratory spirits that will be provided by The Whig. Live art exhibits will scatter the property for your entertainment via Izms of Art, while a "Make a Scene" live Drawing rally co-presented by Shigeharu Kobayashi and Shig-Nanigans will be set up for your involvement. Guests will also have the pleasure of taking a tour of our beloved city through an interactive map of Columbia.
Come and see, come and do, but most importantly-come and be a part of the start of something great. The sixth annual Indie Grits Festival is not to be missed. It aims at celebrating all things awesome in film, music, and art through a non-stop eleven day rain of parties, concerts, screenings, and cultural events.
It's all right here in town. Part of our sweet city that comes from the very heart of our city. And that is most certainly something to celebrate.
