RiverScene 2018

The weather will sometimes trick you into thinking the day will remain grey, but just then the sun comes out to play. It wasn’t any different at RiverScene June 1-3 Featuring over 60+ bands, local art, eats, and brews in 2018 at Wenonah park in Bay City, Mi.

The inspiration that is conjured at events in the area is IMPERATIVE to the growth of the scene. I attended as a fam, an artist, journalist, and a contributor.
Why? Showing up for the scene is number one, and contributing is number 2, together they create a natural flow of networking and relativity. People support such events for the opportunities to experience their local culture, with one another, in the open air.

Slice the Bump Fest

A Bump in the Night Film Fest 2017 Review

Transmission Error;

As I sit in the grass and look around me I see people and the comforts of community strewn throughout the lawn chairs that sit side by side, eager to watch the externalized dreams of a collection of artists in cinema, sound, and event production.

My name is Michael Gonzalez, owner operator of Crowded Couch, which is an art music and networking platform. Our motto is art, comfort, community.I am from bay city, Michigan, where I still reside, but my heart is with all causes that relate to my own dream for MORE ART, MORE EVENTS, MORE PARTICIPATION, MORE LOVE and APPRECIATION FOR ARTS.

I consider myself a jack of all arts, with the intent to incubate, network, and accent art comfort and community. I use art to shock the beauty out of people. Poetry. Photography, music, sculpture, mixed media painting and collage, etc.

Cinema slice is naturally an extension of all if this by virtue of it’s existence, and so being invited to contribute to the Creative Soup is a true blessing.

  • Why do we art?
  • And what is the purpose of a collective?
