About

I am fundraising for a building for a music venue in Lansing MI. I have been running Displaced Manor since August 2016 and have hosted around 40 shows out of my home and DIY venue. I host every variation of punk, rock and metal music genres (hardcore,poppunk,sludge,grindcore,progressive,stoner,epicmetal,etc) I've hosted bands and formed connections from California, Washington DC, Ohio, Illinois, Oklahoma and Wisconsin already, and every corner of the state of Michigan so far.  I have met many cool and interesting people during this time, and when asked, it is my favorite part of all this effort. 

I have always loved fast music since I was an awkward teenage girl. I used to drive hours to go to a local show because I wasn't surrounded by what I loved in northern Michigan. I've wanted to run a venue since I was 16 years old, when I took my first business class. I moved to Lansing to finish up years of college for art/business/management and be closer to cool stuff. I used to play in a few bands playing guitar and bass over the years and I understand how all dynamics work and run. I always have felt at home in the capital city and I enjoy it.

In the future, I want to run an all ages space for hanging out during down time when concerts aren't happening. I want to have a coffee bar, movie nights, a space for vendors to sell what they love to do, and food shares. I also want to throw in some educated speakers and classes for people to learn life skills like car repair, financals, bike repair, things of that nature. I want to help be the change we wish to see in the world. I realize that I am still a long ways off from achieving this goal fully, but I always have to look forward and think bigger and better. 

The funds raised would go towards the first three months of rent and some running expenses. 

Risks and challenges

Unexpected costs will always come up, and I have knowledge of what to expect down the road and i've formed enough connections with people that can help me when I need it.
