@ Mason Building (formerly Crossroads Music Hall) on Clinton Avenue, Saturday 6pm-midnight
Lowe Mill is moving! That’s right- for one night only Lowe Mill is moving downtown! For months they have been fixing up the wrecked interior of the old Crossroads bar so that the long-empty building can be transformed into a kind of camp for their artists, bringing a taste of the Lowe Mill experience to the downtown night life for a completely unique event. Not only will there be 25+ artists displaying and selling their work in every corner of the building, there will also be food, drinks, and music throughout the night. Don’t miss out!
