2020 Vision Concert

6-9:30pm, T or C Civic Center, 400 W. Fourth Street,

A benefit concert and New Year celebration! “The King & Marilyn” will take you on a journey back to The Golden Age of Entertainment via a live show show that meticulously and respectfully recreates the electrifying musical excitement of the 1950s and early 1960s, and brings two influential superstars onto the same stage. It’s hosted by STEAMpunks Creative Center; proceeds raise capital and operational support for new programs at the Center and in Sierra County. The vision of STEAMpunks Creative Center is to open a student-led Print Shop and Computer Repair Shop, teaching youth valuable 21st-century skills and entrepreneurship, while generating sustainable program income for the Creative Center. This would include equipment such as shredders and extruders to divert plastic from the landfill and recycle it into 3D filament for printers to make new products. Programs will teach valuable career readiness and job skills while addressing real-world problems. Tickets are $25-50 from STEAMpunks Creative Center.
