Better Block Norfolk

Join us tonight as we, along with other local artists, perform in support of Better Block Norfolk.

NORFOLK – A block of Granby Street from Olney Road to Addison Street will come alive this weekend for Meet, Greet + Imagine- Granby Street = The Better Block project.  Join the City of Norfolk, Team Better Block and hundreds of volunteers on Friday April 12, 2013 from 5:00pm-9:00pm and Saturday April 13, 2013 from 9:00am-3:00pm.  Once vacant properties will transform into pop-up retail, cafes and art galleries, public art will enlighten drab walls and temporary bike lanes and landscaping will turn this auto-heavy two lane road into a walkable, bikeable experience.  “Better Block provides an opportunity to envision the possibilities in an underutilized area,” said City Manager Marcus D. Jones. “It provides small business owners an opportunity to run their business and the city the data to discover ways to better serve them.”

We perform at 7:30pm inside the old Texaco Building, part of the Propinquity Effect.  If you're a Norfolk local, come out and show your optimism for Norfolk's future.  Plus, there's art, beer, bands, food, sketch comedy, etc.
