RAW Nashville’s Launch Party & Official Meet & Greet: January 15, 2011

I recently became aware of RAW when they friended me on Facebook, and I have to say, it looks like a pretty cool concept. As written on their Facebook profile, "RAW is an eclectic monthly showcase featuring independent, artistic talent: film, fashion, music and DJ, art, makeup, hair design & performing art". And on Saturday, January 15, 2011, RAW Nashville will be hosting their launch party and official meet & greet from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Mercy Lounge. Here is the information regarding the event as detailed in their Facebook invite:

OUR PLAN: 4 People. 4 Wheels. 10,000 miles.

Stop in from 7-9 on January 15th at MERCY LOUNGE to see and hear what RAW Nashville is all about! Free of charge, open to the public--the more the merrier, so spread the word!

RAW is an independent arts organization. We're based out of Southern California (Los Angeles). RAW hand selects independent talent in film, fashion, music, art, performing art, hair styling, makeup artistry, photography etc. After we've selected the best of the best underground talent in an artistic community we showcase them together in monthly events.

We also showcase the artists online via and through other viral media and marketing. Our mission is to provide tools and resources for up and comers to promote themselves independently in the marketplace.

For the past 2 years RAW has been operating our monthly showcases in 6 cities across California (Hollywood, Los Angeles, Orange County, Long Beach, San Diego and San Francisco). After the repeated success we set out on a mission to do this outside of our state. We hired and trained the most skilled event producers we could find- and now we're launching in 22 cities nationwide in 2011----INCLUDING RIGHT HERE IN NASHVILLE!

On December 29th, our RAW Founders as well as our key videographeand documentary team are driving cross-country to all of the cities we're expanding to. Our videographer is filming the entire experience to complete a RAWcross America Documentary.

and WE WANT TO MEET YOU! Come to our MEET/GREET at MERCY LOUNGE from 7-9pm!

Our Season starts in February!
What can you Expect?
Each RAW showcase is different. A usual night will start off with a cocktail hour and perusing the gallery that stays lit all night. Then you'd watch short film screening, see a musical performance (band), then a performance art piece (dance troupe or comedian etc) then we go into the fashion show and the cherry on top is the DJ and after party. It is a circus of creativity, cocktails, expression and fun!
