Musicians put on a show to support local venue

16 acts perform on March 16 to aid Lacey-Lou Tapas Lounge

Lacey-Lou Tapas Lounge is quickly becoming a favourite live music venue for musicians and fans in Victoria and those folks are banding together to lend the venue a hand.

Due to higher than projected necessary renovation costs, the venue needs help to get through the next few lean months, says organizer James Kasper. They are putting on a FAB FUNDRAISER! including 16 acts on March 16 to help raise funds.

“Even if you have never heard of any of them and you’ve been invited to seven house parties and two raves that same night and you’re still recovering from an all-night binge the night before and your sinuses are acting up, do us a favour and come out anyway,” says Kasper.

Tickets to the all-ages show are $10 at the door – and there will be a tip jar to add to donations for those feeling a little extra generous.

“Even if you’ve spent the past decade holed up in a bunker due to your delayed reaction to the Y2K scare … and you’re still groggy and disoriented and you have a lot of laundry to do – come out anyway,” Kasper adds.

There’ll be super-funky-cool, one-of-a-kind, one-night-only rare artifact door prize packages as well. Doors open at 6:30, Lacey-Lou Tapas Lounge is located at 1320 Broad Street.

Bands include:

Adventures of Nightgirl

Auto Jansz

Benedict Beattie

Chris Andres Authentic Outlaw Country

Danton Jay Music

Dave Cormier Band (duo)

James Kasper & The True Vine

Jill Cooper

Jonny Miller

Little Nectar

Mike Demers
