Audio Alliance is bound to satisfy students’ cravings for more local nightlife when it provides fresh musical experiences featured at Snow Flow, Saturday, Feb. 7 at Bruisers in downtown Stevens Point.
Danica Nikezic, the news director at 90FM, said nightlife could be enhanced for students through Audio Alliance.
“Right now, there’s just Centertainment Productions, which is great, and there are bars downtown, but I think we need more,” Nikezic said.
Snow Flow will feature electronic dance and hip-hop genres and performances by the hip-hop duo The Palmer Squares and chill funk DJ, Beak Nasty. Audio Alliance seeks to promote local musicians at the event.
Nikezic believes that with the right support from students, organizations like Audio Alliance will thrive in the community.
“Half of what Audio Alliance does is promoting, documenting and coordinating events,” Nikezic said. “The other half is the work of the students attending the events and sharing their experiences.”
Colton Oltesvig and Joey Garofano, the Audio Alliance event coordinators, elaborated about how Audio Alliance benefits a community like Stevens Point.
Through the organization, they hope to provide a larger influx of live performances to students and community members, network with campus organizations, emphasize diversity and contribute unique ideas to the atmosphere of the city.
“A reason I joined Audio Alliance and wanted to host events was because I always had to travel at least two or three hours, if not more, to attend a musical event in or near Stevens Point,” Oltesvig said. “I definitely enjoy the location of Stevens Point because it is right in the middle of the state and is surrounded by plenty of smaller towns. With Audio Alliance, people won’t have to drive as far to attend a concert of this magnitude.”
Doors open for the event at 7 p.m. Music begins at 7:30 p.m. and will continue through the night until 2 a.m. Tickets are available for purchase at the door for $15 or $10 ahead of time.
