First Friday
See which flavor you like and I'll have it for you / Come on into my store, I've got candy galore / Don't pretend you're not hungry, I've seen it before / I've got Turkish delight baby and so much more

Licky, licky, yum, yum - it's FIRST FRIDAY - Candy Shoppe!

Doors open at 8pm where you’ll be greeted by some major eye-candy: up-and-coming hip-hop act, Khaosity. They will be rapping their original music for the early portion from 8-9pm.

That sweetness will be sure to get you stuck at the party, and it only gets sweeter from there with DJ Llu spinning tunes from 9-11pm. Empress Crystal Jonez makes their First Friday debut with some extra confections for the dance floor from 11pm-1am. It will be so sugary-sweet, you won't wanna stop dancing to the beat.

And don't forget the midnight drag show - featuring splendid performances from your hosts as well as special guests, Shani (2017 Vermont Drag Idol winner), and Shay Dee (2018 Vermont Drag Idol: All Stars winner). You'll definitely want a lick of their lollies.

As always, your hosts Emoji Nightmare and Nikki Champagne will be in-house entertaining you all night long.
Antara with Chris Cheney
Whether busy conjuring variations of rhythm folk poetry in song lyrics or exploring the percussive-like dynamics of her trademark guitar riffs, independent folk songstress Antara continues to establish herself as a 'new' folk artist that is expanding the forefront of women’s music and the independent folk movement. Having performed professionally for a dozen years in more than 500 venues throughout New England, Canada, The Midwest and The South, Antara’s unique fusion of rhythmic folk music and interactive coffee house performance capitalizes on a consistent sharing of the sociological perspective that shapes her life, love and work.
