Being creative is cool again.
Not that it ever lost its cool, but it will be more evident when The Wormhole hosts its first "creative industry night" as part of the First Friday Art March offical after party. Akin to service industry nights, musicians, writers, photographers, designers and artists of all types will receive discounted drinks after the neighborhood art crawl through the Starland District.
Live music by Charlie and the Foxtrots, Smooth Hound Smith and Fare the Gap cap the night that's become a touchstone of an industry that yes, is still cool.
Chas Wilson of Charlie and the Foxtrots, a pop-folk-bluegrass group that formed in Statesboro, said he was excited for the after party and lauded Amy Stafford, owner of The Wormhole, for all the support she's given them.
"Amy has been extremely kind and easy to work with in the process of planning this show," he said. "Sometimes it's hard to get in contact with a club after booking about logistics; however, Amy has been very open with us to the point of giving us her personal contact information in order to make the process go smoothly."
Wilson said he was excited for the Art March, a community collaboration to highlight the thriving arts and business community of the Hostess City on the first Friday of every month.
Asked what was cool about that, Wilson said, "There's nothing like Savannah on a Friday night, and now there's an after party? Um, everything."
