This truly one-of-a-kind music and film event takes place over two nights in September and features the work of Argentinian singer, songwriter, Juana Molina and American singer, songwriter and artist Julia Holter. Both nights open up with a live performance by and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate, who performs under the moniker Noveller and recently toured with Iggy Pop.
Visit FIGat7th for this special, two-day event on September 28 & 29. Come early for an outdoor drink at TASTE Courtyard along with a variety of great dinner options from all the eateries at FIGat7th. Picnicking is encouraged and blankets provided while supplies last. DJs spin at 7:00 p.m. with performances and screenings at 8:00 p.m on the FIGat7th Plaza.
