10/18: Creative Release at OneCity

At NATIVE, we believe in the catharsis that comes with creativity. We think there’s nothing like that feeling you get when your hard work—the stuff that’s the result of sleepless nights in front of the laptop, sewing machine, or studio monitors—is finally ready to be released into the world. It might just be the coolest (and most anxiety-inducing) feeling there is.

To celebrate that feeling, NATIVE is teaming up with Denim Days and OneCity to present Creative Release, an event where the creative endeavors featured in the pages of NATIVE come to life. Every month, NATIVEs will get a chance to experience some of the finest creative projects in Nashville firsthand. But more importantly, you’ll get a get to meet the people who painstakingly built those projects with nothing but their blood, sweat, and side hustles (we see you and feel your pain, you Lyft-driving, freelance champion).

This month’s creative release is on October 18 at OneCity and will begin at 7 p.m. Come by to check out a pop-up shop from Denim Days, baked goods from The Catio, catering by Inglewood Lounge, vegan ice cream from Koko’s, tarot readings from Violet Guide, and a performance by Saaneah. As always, it’s all free, and you can RSVP here. Oh, and while you’re there, pick up a copy of Issue 76.
