The Vault Arts Collective and the Sound Bank will host their anniversary celebrations together on Saturday, September 3 at 6 p.m. at 100 N. Main Street in Tuscola, Ill. The celebration features a music trivia competition, an art contest, giveaways, speed painting and free refreshments.
The focus of the night will be Thee Tournament of Rock & Pop Trivia, a competitive quiz show tournament hosted by Cavetone Records where two-person teams must demonstrate their musical knowledge. The grand prize package is worth over $300 from The Vault and various rounds have various prizes supplied by the Sound Bank.
Between rounds of the bracket-style tournament, Karl Jendry will be performing speed-painting while vintage pop and rock records spin. Downstairs, The Vault will be hosting an art knowledge contest with various prizes.
As with all Vault and Sound Bank events, hors d’oeuvres and refreshments are served, it is welcoming to all ages, and there is no charge to attend.
This night commemorates the third anniversary of The Vault Arts Collective and the first anniversary of the Sound Bank, the vinyl-only record store and music space located on the second floor of The Vault.
The Vault opened in the last week of August in 2013, when the “Original 7” artists left The Factory in Sullivan. Over the next two years, the collective grew to over 70 artists and every variant of visual art filled the 12,000 square feet of the historic former bank building.
In 2015, through a partnership with Cavetone Records, The Vault expanded its live music space and gained an all-vinyl record store with the Sound Bank.
Those interested in competing in Thee Tournament of Rock & Pop Trivia can sign up in numerous manners including at the front desk of The Vault, emailing John McDevitt at firstname.lastname@example.org or sending a message through The Vault’s Facebook page. There is no entry fee and any team of two people are welcome to sign up.
The doors to the event open at 6 p.m. and Thee Tournament begins promptly at 7 p.m.
