VOX Chattanooga, a music/benefit event series, will begin on Nov. 8 and will feature music by Josh Gilbert, Amer Fults and artwork and sculpture by Matthew Dutton, with guests new musicians Skylark and Patricia Isom.
All of the proceeds will go to benefit Chattanooga Recreation Centers' Youth Arts program and supplies.
November's VOX Chattanooga Concert will take place at Barking Legs Theatre at 7 p.m. Tickets are $7 at the door.
Mr. Gilbert will be hosting VOX Chattanooga monthly after that, and each event will host new Indie artists and bands as well as having the proceeds benefit a local, and tangible cause.
VOX Chattanooga will also be joining Voxtropolis International on Nov. 8 for a series of events called the End of the World Tour. According to one interpretation of the Mayan calendar, the world will end on Dec. 21. The End of the World Tour is all about a chance to start again…to create your own future.
The End of the World tour is sponsored by Voxtropolis, an international network of musicians and artists (creatives) who have "come together to start a social movement that celebrates creativity, provokes conversation, and ignites compassion. As a social movement, Voxtropolis exists to inspire the world to wrestle with the question, what does it mean to be human? According to the creatives behind the movement, a question this profound cannot be left to science or governments or corporations. It must also be grappled with through art and lives well lived. And that’s the ethos of the local networks Voxtropolis inspires."
