Like most 2020 festivals and music events, Bublr Bash – now in its third year- will be a virtual affair. The fundraiser and free concert takes place Saturday, Aug.22 from 5 to 9 p.m. on YouTube, Facebook Live and Twitch.
The goal is to raise funds and attract sponsors that will allow Bublr Bikes, Greater Milwaukee’s nonprofit bikeshare operator, to continue working on its mission of delivering a quality, sustainable bikeshare system.
The musical lineup includes Vincent Van Great & Ninja Sauce, Amanda Huff, SistaStrings, Immortal Girlfriend, Sleeper Sound, Yogi B & Keez and Rio Lanza.
"This event is going to bring Milwaukee together on several platforms, to create an opportunity for homegrown artists to have an outlet during these times, and to raise funds for more bike stations to be added on throughout Milwaukee," says promoter John Cunningham.
The concert will be recorded at KneeverLand Studios in Walker's Point, but due to COVID-19, will not be open to the public.
Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
