What is going on?

Evansville has lost a couple of artist hangouts this year. One was the wired and the other was PG. Though Wired still livers as The Hub, but there is no new PG at the moment.

Who does this effect?

It effects the local artist of Evansville. They lost a couple of places to show their art and music to the community. It also effects the people that are looking for that local art community and enjoy it.

Why does this matter to me?

It matters to me that I might miss out on the local music in Evansville. My first dive into the local music of Evansville was at PG at event called Little Sound Assembly. I went to the first one they held in 2014 shortly after I came back from China. Then I went to everyone except for one. I missed out for some reason.

My first time going to Wired was to see my friend Kaanvas. It was Kaanvas first time back into the music scene after a hiatus.

I went to many different shows and events at each place. Seeing different acts like Paper Sweaters, North by North, and many more. I had a great time. It allowed me to get out more and change to meet people.

Went to an art show that PG held and it was for a digital art. I didn't end up buying anything but it was fun looking at the art.

These was some great places, and they are going to be missed.

What now?

I don't know. Maybe someone will pick up after what they left or the art scene will die out.
