West Stockbridge – In January, The Foundry in West Stockbridge temporarily closed out of an abundance of caution amidst the rise of the Omicron Variant. Shutting down was a huge financial hardship, but a responsible move to action for everyone’s safety. The dire moment made it necessary to launch a GoFundMe for the venue to keep from permanently closing.
After having raised over $12,000, the venue will reopen and fulfill its mission to offer a platform for diverse, unique artists. Music, comedy, and dance fill every weekend February through May.
Coming in from out of town are Brooklyn favorites Pinc Louds’ Claudi, shapeshifting drag yenta Josephine Network, and post-gender eruption of power SUO. Soul blues artists Alexis P. Suter and Muddy Ruckus, and Russian-American violinist Yevgeny Kutik with collaborative pianist Max Levinson.
Comedy takes the stage with Eryca Nolan’s Project Herlarious, and the West Stockbridge Wisdom Lodge Comedy Night Fundraiser.
Tickets for all events can be found at thefoundryws.com. The Foundry looks forward to their reopening, and will continue to add events to their online calendar.
