The 6th annual Art and Music thing will be held on Saturday, January 21 at the Gryphon Theatre.

The first Art and Music thing was held in 2012 to celebrate the launch of News from Nowehere. Editor in Chief Wiley Combs held the event, which was attended by more than 200 people, in his home.

Last year's Art and Music thing hosted more than 20 exhibits from local artists and over 30 local bands. There were also collaborative art pieces, acting workshops, and arcade games throughout the venue.

Doors will open for the Art and Music thing at 10 a.m., and performances will start at 1 p.m. Tickets can be purchased for $5 in advance by clicking here, or $8 at the door.

Proceeds from the event will go to local charity organizations, such as the SAFE Project.
