Artworks Third Friday brings electronic dance party tonight

The Bridge and Tunnel Collective in collaboration with Artworks Around Town announce two acts scheduled to entertain at Third Friday tonight.

Sean Decker of the Collective is pleased to welcome Love and Data and Weird Lightning, and promises “an electronic dance party that’ll overload your circuits.”

The shows will take place outside Artworks on the north porch area (weather permitting) . Open mic is from 7-8 p.m., followed by Love and Data at 8 p.m., with Weird Lightning closing from 9-10 p.m.

Love and Data will be making their 3rd Friday debut this month. Nate and Amber Musser are passionate about their craft and are becoming well known in the local music scene. They started playing music in the basement of their home after their children were finally settled in bed for the night. According to third Friday’s Facebook page, they have “assembled a hard drive’s worth of slick beats and catchy melodies.”

Weird Lightning returns after their debut at the New Faces night last year. Wheeling natives, Bethany Decker and Joshua Bommer formed Weird Lightning in the fall of 2016. They are expanding their musical scene in the area with their original, electronic beats.

There will be concessions for sale. All contributions go to the performing artists. The Steubenville Art Association has artwork in the Studio Gallery while art from Laughlin Chapel’s enrichment camps is featured in the North Gallery. Artworks Around Town is a nonprofit charitable and educational organization that operates a Gallery and Art Center for the benefit of the artists an general public of the region. Located at 2200 Market St,. hours are ten a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday except for Friday, when closing is at 6 p.m.
