Just a heads-up to let everyone know that Night Wave, a project organized by Vince Kadlubek that received the bulk of the nightlife stimulus funding awarded earlier this year, is taking place this Thursday-Sunday (July 31-August 3)! AHA is playing a role as well, by collecting data.
Night Wave is a nightlife prototyping festival. What does that mean? The event will concentrate a ton of cool nightlife events–music, theater, stand-up comedy and more–in a prime downtown location. There will be late night food (and food trucks), a free shuttle that runs all through town, and free, outdoor, pop-up performance. The data we collect will tell the story of what the economic and community impact would be if nightlife were thriving just like this all year round. What would Santa Fe look like with that extra revenue and vibrancy? We hope to find out.
