“Yachty By Nature” – TheFIX.fm Launch Party at Tivoli
Location:Charleston, South Carolina
Venue:"Yachty By Nature" - TheFIX.fm Launch Party at Tivoli
Set sail with TheFIX.fm, Charleston’s newest challenge to corporate radio, for its May 3 launch event at Tivoli downtown.
TheFIX.fm, Charleston’s brand-new online radio station, is hosting a party at the downtown art collective Tivoli on Saturday, May 3 from 8pm to late to celebrate its April launch and the May 1 release of its iPhone and Android application. The event will feature live music, DJs, video projection, live art, beer and wine, food vendors, raffle prizes, and an on-site radio broadcast.
Live music will be provided by Susto, Johnny Delaware, and Lily Slay of The Royal Tinfoil from 8pm-11pm. DJs Cool Hand J, Party Dad, and guests will take over the music from 11pm to as long as the party keeps going. Tivoli artists will be showcasing their work in their studios inside Tivoli.
The theme of the party is “Going Yachting.” Guests are encouraged, but not required, to dress in typical nautical attire (e.g. blazers, polo shirts, boat shoes, sailor hats, anything anchor-print, etc.) or formal wear.
Entrance to the event for those who wish to drink is five dollars, which grants guests unlimited access to wine and beer on tap, while supplies last. Additionally, all attendees of the College of Charleston Alumni Association’s “A Charleston Affair” event will receive free entrance and access to drinks. Food will be available for purchase from Pep Rolls.
TheFIX.fm, with this and planned future events, wants to change the way people party in Charleston and bring back the underground scene that used to flourish.
TheFIX.fm is an online, music-based radio station created in April 2014 by Brad Cooper and Boyd Stough, founders of Kinetic HiFi, which was chosen as “Best Local Radio Station” by the Charleston City Paper staff in their most recent Best Of awards. The FIX is an alternative to traditional corporate radio, which has “lost touch with the people and musicians who make up the communities it used to serve,” according to Cooper.
The format of the station is described as indie, alternative, electronic, and local. “You’ll hear familiar stuff mixed in with songs you’ve never heard before, so you can discover new music without getting overwhelmed,” says Cooper. More than 40 local artists are in regular rotation and an average of three local songs are played per hour.
The FIX also features a variety of live mix shows from local DJs, in-studio interviews and performances, and advertisements from local sponsors. The website hosts a variety of original written and video material as well as sourced content from Holy City Sinner, Wake Magazine, SC Music Guide, and other local/regional publications.
