Lacey-Lou Tapas Lounge hosts its own fundraiser

The popular live music venue is hosting a fundraiser called 16 acts on March 16.

A Victoria live music venue is looking for a little extra support after renovations cost more than expected.

Lacey-Lou Tapas Lounge, a popular live music venue is hosting a fundraiser called 16 acts on March 16. An array of groups and singers, 16 of them, will each take the mic to play one to two songs.

“It gives people the chance to come out and hear 16 great local acts they haven’t heard before,” said James Kasper, owner of Mighty Speck Records.

Kasper said Victoria has a lot to offer when it comes to live music, but its a challenge to keep venues in town.

“Part of it is a lot of people don’t know theres a great live local music scene in town and its easy enough to get other musicians out to live shows but its challenging to get the general public out because they may not know.”

Tickets are $10 at the door with an option to make an extra donation. Musical guests include Dave Cormier Band, James Kasper and The True Vine and Little Nectar.

“Even if you have never heard of any of them and you’ve been invited to seven house parties and two raves that same night and you’re still recovering from an all-night binge the night before and your sinuses are acting up, do us a favour and come out anyway,” said Kasper.

Lacey-Lou Tapas Lounge is located at 1320 Broad St.
