Performing: Now You See Them, Benefiting Arts 2 People’s Asheville Mural Project (Asheville, NC) The new and funky Lexington Ave. Bazaar is about to kick-off for the year on Saturday, May 23rd in downtown Asheville from 11am – 4pm. This is an eclectic outdoor market featuring indie artists, crafters and designers local to Asheville and will also feature a different musical performance as well as benefit local non-profits. The Bazaar will take place every 1st and 3rd Saturday in the Lexington Park Courtyard (gated entrance next to Virtue) nestled between North Lexington Ave and Carolina Lane in Asheville, NC. This is an ongoing event through the beginning of October.
The Bizarre Bazaar is proud to announce that the organizer’s proceeds from the first four Saturdays will go to support Arts 2 People’s Asheville Mural Project on Lexington Ave. We like to think of it as the Arts supporting the Arts. This might give you another reason to come and support the Bazaar. http://www.arts2people.org/amp.html
Each market will also feature performers from Asheville. Now You See Them will be performing at the kickoff event, they are a super-fun acoustic indie/folk trio dedicated to delivering a great time. Appealing to virtually all audiences through beautiful harmonies, slow burning lyrics, and non traditional instruments, NYST combines thoughtfully ironic originals alongside carefully selected covers making their shows a not-to-be-missed breath of fresh air. www.myspace.com/nowyouseethem
