Confluence Arts Center and Blugold Radio partner for unique patio concert at Haymarket Landing

The Confluence Arts Center, in collaboration with Blugold Radio 99.9 FM, announces a special outdoor concert at Haymarket Landing overlooking the building site of the new Arts Center on Friday, August 25th at 7 pm. The concert will feature Eau Claire Bands Dames, Idle Empress and Heart Pills.

“Eau Claire’s artists, performers, writers, and students all will have an exciting new home come September 2018 – – that home is the Confluence.” Miller continues, “There has been a great deal of planning, progress, construction, and excitement for the future. But it’s time we get back to basics and showcase what Eau Claire and the Confluence is all about — great local artists in a great local venue celebrating together.”

Blugold Radio Station Manager Scott Morfitt echoes Miller saying, “We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with the Confluence Arts Center on this special patio concert. With all the current national attention being paid to this scene, we are working very hard to create more opportunities and spaces to celebrate the depth of great talent we have here.”
