Make Music Salem 2018 is on Thursday, June 21st. The organizers are trying to raise some cash this year to offset their out of pocket expenses by holding these fundraiser concerts once a month until the big day. These are not only opportunities to come listen to some sweet local talent, but they’re opportunities for you to come and meet the event organizers, find out how to get involved, donate to the cause to become a Friend of Make Music Salem. We’re bringing you a nice little variety of entertainment featuring Natalie Laswell – beautiful voice with her acoustic guitar; Robotic Torres – beatbox extraordinaire, seriously, you gotta see this; and Center Mass String Quartet – hard folk punkabilly! Free – but this IS a fundraiser – donations will be graciously accepted and put towards Salem’s biggest outdoor music festival.
