With great beer comes great music! To celebrate the launch of Radio Artifact Live, there will be a free show from 4-8pm in the newly renovated live music space. To close out the night, Dan Deacon will be performing a free show upstairs in our Reliquary Space, with openers starting at 8:30pm. In association to Urban Artifact's 5th Birthday, we are also taking the time to debut Radio Artifact Live, which is an amalgamation of a radio station, live music venue, and recording studio. This launch will mark the completion of an entire aesthetic facelift to our venue that transforms the acoustics of the room and will allow for local and touring musicians to record their music directly in the space.
