BHW All Ages Concert Series: Suburban Samurai; Keep Flying; Why Nona 6/13/18
Suburban Samurai, Why Nona, and Keep flying will be performing at Big Heavy World, a substance free venue, on June 13th. Burlington lost a historic all-ages music venue when 242 Main was closed in December, 2016. It was located inside Memorial Auditorium, which was shut down pending long term structural repairs. Big Heavy World — the independent Vermont music office staffed by volunteers — is making an effort to fill that gap in local culture until 242 Main is reinstated. The nonprofit organization is hosting a substance-free, all ages concert series at their headquarters inside the SEABA Center. Big Heavy World is a vocal advocate for reigniting 242 Main as Memorial Auditorium is redeveloped; a petition supporting this cause at save242main.com has gathered more than 1,700 signatures and a documentary film is in production.
Big Heavy World is substance-free and wheelchair accessible, located at the SEABA Center, 404 Pine Street, in the heart of Burlington’s South End Arts District. A $5 donation is suggested to support the artists. The concert series is made possible in part with generous support from AARP. Big Heavy World maintains an environment of safety, dignity and mutual respect for people of any ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or ability.
The concert series provides an opportunity for teens to participate in event production and promotion as volunteers, to learn skills and support the local music community. Big Heavy World also hosts a weekly drop-in program, ‘Band House,’ that makes a full backline available to teen musicians to practice on, jam, or explore different instruments.
Hailing from Vermont (U.S.)'s queen-city of Burlington, Melodic-Punk-Rockers Suburban Samurai balance and deliver their signature and swift one-two punch of a set though a series of high tempo and heavy-upbeat tunes, featuring catchy vocals and a driven rhythm.
