This morning I had the opportunity to have Kelsy Koffman and Sean Hieser in from the Jackpot Gallery in Riverwest on the Morning show to talk about this weekend’s RIVERWEST FEST.
Last year they began a DIY art studio in Riverwest called the Jackpot Gallery. Jackpot soon began to feature shows in the basement, which they dubbed the Eagle’s Nest.
As the nest grew in popularity, the city began to take notice to the crowds, and the Fire Department advised that they bring the venue up to code, or face some serious violations and fines.
In an attempt to become a legit venue, Kelsy and the gang are hosting a weekend long fundraiser called RIVERWEST FEST.

Here is my interview with the gang…
