FLEMINGTON DIY (Do It Yourself) is an organization whose mission is to inspire social change by fostering and cultivating projects that connect the local community with musicians and artists in Flemington.”  Flemington DIY is a non-profit organization dedicated to the arts in all forms. Besides serving as a creative art space, hosting poetry nights, film viewings, cultural meetings, etc., this space is known as the center music hub for the area.  They have hosted a number of up and coming bands previously such as Petal, Dowsing, Jank, Spencer Radcliff, and many more.

For this show, the art space will be donating all proceeds to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).  The gig is on Saturday, February 25th, 2017, and doors are at 6:00pm.  The show will be All-Ages, and it's for an awesome and very relevant cause.  Twitter recently donated over $1.5 million dollars to fight Trump on immigration:

This show may or may not raise that amount of money, but with the right attitude, it very well might be able to.  People are people, people are equal, and it should be that simple.  Come out with a crisp 5 dollar bill to help raise money for a good cause, and to have yourself a good time with great music.  In addition to the bands, there will be multiple artists at this art space selling their art.  Wild.

You can purchase a number of art pieces from:

Mallory Rummel
Desiree Feliciano
Olivia Olivier
Nora Evita Aresti
Corinne Dodenhoff
Megan Chelednik
Maegan Monico
Valerie Ryan
Tracy Robinson
Taylor Ashbrook
