I can’t believe there’s less than 160 days left until WMC Fest 2014… yeah, it’s coming up fast! Have you heard about our new team members? Margot Harrington and Stewart Scott Curran are our new speaker co-directors, and James Carol is our new music director. We are honored to have them on our team and they are busy booking right now.

Head to the WMC Fest page here: WMC Fest.com

But the point of this post to tell you all that we’re officially kicking-off the countdown to WMC5 at our benefit show on Saturday, April 19th! It will be like a mini WMC Fest for only $6. It takes place in Cleveland at the Beachland Tavern. I’m sorry to all our out-of-state friends, I know it’s unlikely you can attend, but I wanted to keep you in the loop anyway. If you want to help support WMC from afar, just click to tweet this message. 

It will be a great chance to reconnect with your WMC friends and get excited as we roll into the spring time and start counting the days till the big fest in August.

Here’s the link to the Facebook event:

On tap for the evening:

In the spirit of WMC, there will be a special presentation by OKPANTS (Designer, Illustrator, Ink Wars Champ, WMC 2 speaker) and a gallery of over 50 posters and prints on display for silent auction. This will be your last chance to buy some of the beautiful works donated by last year’s featured artists.

We’ve got an amazing night of music planned as well with a diverse group of Northeast Ohio bands including Black Puddle Noise (garage rock power trio), Hawkeye (in-your face rock & electronica), and one of our favorite WMC Music Alums Bethesda!

And finally, there will be door prizes, discounted WMC merch, and best of all, you can get a this-night-only discount on WMC 5 Fest passes!
