UnRest: A Musical Resistance Concert Series

We’re pleased to announce a new concert series here at Little Mission Studio, Unđť„˝Rest.

We’ve been asking ourselves, what is best way to utilize our skills and talents to bring our community together around a shared cause? UnRest is a concert series with the intent of bringing people together around music and a common social cause.

Each concert will be centered on a specific social issue and theme, with music and programming within that theme, and 100% of proceeds from each concert will be donated to a corresponding target organization!

We truly believe in music as a universal language and as a means of capturing and expressing what is happening in the world today. Music is also inherently community building, bringing people together. We hope our concert series will serve as a space for thought, reflection, and action through music.

Our first concert in the series will be:


UnRest: Immigrants & Refugees

  • Saturday, March 18th 2017 at 8 PM
  • Tickets: Suggested $15 Donation

All proceeds from this concert will be donated to the ACLU.

You may purchase advance tickets here. Tickets will also be available at the door, but due to our limited seating capacity, advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.
