Watch the Downtown Eastside Artist Showcase!
This month, Everybody Is In, Cushy Entertainment and CJSF 90.1 FM present to you a Downtown Eastside Artist Showcase, in three parts! Join our hosts Aly Laube and Anjalica Solomon at the Red Gate, from wherever you are in time and space, as we put on a show in support of Everybody Is In and the Downtown Eastside community.
Every Friday at 7pm from July 2-16, we will air a new set from the Showcase as a YouTube Playlist: visit the CJSF 90.1 FM YouTube channel or scroll down this page to watch all of our Downtown East Side Artist Showcase sets as they go live this July.
