In conjunction with the Drive-By Truckers 2014 Homecoming
Weekend, Nuci's Space is once again throwing the official DBT Pre-Party before
their Saturday show.
Please join us for a happy hour gathering from 4:30-6:30 on Saturday, February

light refreshments. Please drop by and hang out for a while!
This is an awareness campaign to support the 1 in 6 men who had unwanted or abusive sexual experiences in childhood. The 1BlueString campaign is simple. We are asking guitarists, at all levels, to replace their low E (top) guitar string with one of our free blue guitar strings to symbolize the 1 in 6 men.
The Cottage and Nuci’s Space is holding an event with musicians and supporters to kick off the 1BlueString campaign at Nuci’s Space on March 7th from 5:30-7pm. We would like to invite musicians to play, speakers to speak and supporters to join with us. The focus of this campaign is to create a dialogue around the issue of childhood sexual abuse of men, with the hope of DE-stigmatizing the issue and reaching more people who may be dealing with the effects of abuse as adults.
This will be a great night of stories and celebrations and it is FREE!
We hope you can join us!
*If you would like to perform one or two songs on your acoustic guitar on March 7th anytime between 5:30-7pm, please email Sally Sheppard (firstname.lastname@example.org) at The Cottage by March 1st.*
