NOTSTOCK Closing Reception at 62 Doors

NOTSTOCK closes with a reception at 62 Doors Gallery & Studios on Saturday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. Attendees will enjoy art, food, and music with this year’s guests.  Please join us to celebrate a decade of opportunities for hands-in, hands-on interaction and participation in the arts.


Tennessee Jet with Vanity Plate

We are super excited to host musician Tennessee Jet as NOTSTOCK 2016's music guest. TN Jet is a one-man Americana-rock band from Nashville influenced by the hard-core honky-tonk of Dwight Yoakam, the writings of John Steinbeck, and the raw minimalism of The White Stripes. He just recently released a self-titled full-length album.

TN Jet will perform Sept. 23 in the MSU Amphitheater. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and Vanity Plate opens the show at 8 p.m. Be prepared to clap, stomp, and chant along as TN Jet engages the crowd in an experience TOGETHER, blurring the line between performer and audience. The concert is free; donations accepted.
