SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Village Impacts and Madrone Studios today announced the launch of MUSE, a new membership-based event series held monthly at The Village in downtown San Francisco. The series launch event, taking place on Wednesday, November 30, will feature a secret headlining set from a Platinum-selling international artist.
MUSE, an acronym for Music Underground Social Experience, is a one-of-a-kind curated event series blending elements of live music, art, technology, and gourmet food, spread throughout three floors of The Village event space. Each event will showcase intimate musical performances from both up-and-coming musicians and headlining sets from some of the most sought after artists in the world. MUSE organizers are considering booking talent along the caliber of artists like Chance The Rapper, Anderson .Paak, Jidenna, and Lil Dicky, among others.
Utilizing The Village's 75 ft. projection wall and state-of-the-art projection technology throughout the venue, each MUSE event will feature several interactive art installations designed by local and international visual artists. Additionally, members will have open bar access and appetizers provided by renowned Bay Area chefs. The production team has brought on Stephen Satterfield, former Manager of iconic Bay Area restaurant Nopa, to curate the food offerings at each event.
"MUSE is a way for us to use all of our venue and production capabilities to create unique event experiences that will redefine the way people party here in San Francisco and have a social impact at the same time," said Jon Rowe, CEO of Madrone Studios and The Village. "The private membership structure will allow us to produce some really intimate events with top tier musicians, visual artists, and chefs. Our goal is to create experiences that foster a sense of community--each MUSE event will be more than just a concert or party, but rather a place where our members can explore, meet new people, and experience a variety of cultural elements while supporting philanthropic causes."
The Village Impacts, the registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit arm of The Village, will receive 100 percent of the proceeds from MUSE in order to fund programs that support public art and educational initiatives as well as collaborative fundraising events with NPOs in the sustainable food space.
MUSE is an invite-only event series. Visit http://www.muse-sf.com/ for an opportunity to receive an invitation.
