AFTER THE GIG is a weekend-long DIY/punk fest full of bands, workshops, and skill shares to benefit the Pioneer Valley Workers' Center. In organizing this fest, we strive to create a space for creativity, care, support, and discussion for those involved in both diy/punk/art and activism here in Western Massachusetts and elsewhere!

This weekend is about creating space and time to imagine, and hopefully also realize, tangible ways of bringing creativity, community, activism, and radicalism to life beyond just the shows we go to and things we say we believe in and want to do. We wanted to use the phrase “After The Gig” in order to express that these values aren’t just about one weekend, or any kind of performative display. We want to encourage participants, as well as ourselves, to take these shared resources, and these ethics of community engagement and social change, and utilize them in caring and productive ways throughout our daily lives.

All events will be all-ages, sliding scale, wheelchair accessible, and volunteer run. All funds that are required to run the fest are being raised in advance, and all proceeds from the weekend the fest itself will be going straight to the PVWC (with some room fee funds Saturday & Sunday going to Flywheel Arts Collective, another incredible community organization/resource). Below is a list of bands, a schedule of events, and more information on the organizations involved!
