The Garage – Charlottesville’s Most Intimate Venue
I recently stumbled upon The Garage while it was open and running with music and art blaring out into the night. I think it is the coolest little spot in Charlottesville yet. Tiny because the actual size is about the size of one of the JPJ Arena's subwoofers . In the line of underground music venues like the long lived and lost , Pudhouse, The Garage is a seemingly Free music and art venue that is host to some most interesting original works coming out of C'ville life today.
Long live tiny music venues.
The Garage is an art space/concert venue/amateur film theater/
impromptu studio/potluck dining hall/etc located on 1st Street across from Lee Park in Charlottesville, Virginia.
On most Friday nights, you can find the Garageâ€™s door wide open as we enjoy art openings/viewings of monthly exhibitions or concerts by local and regional bands that bring together large crowds in the stadium seating (aka: on the hill of the park) across the street. Weâ€™re also known to host an occasional film screening, dance party, art performance, potluck, or other creative gathering as requested (or hosted) by a community member.
Here at the Garage we value community, creativity, collaboration, and accessibility. We love the paradox of the Garageâ€™s intimacy and yet strange publicness.
We are interested in what it means to be creating and facilitating art in a â€śpublic yet privateâ€ť context. We are not exactly sure where the Garage is located within those realms, but we are inquisitively exploring the topic through various art projects and collaborative conversations.
