Arbutus Industries promotes and hosts curated sonic gatherings/listening events that take place at medium/gallery sized locations in Richmond, Virginia.
Our guiding philosophy is to provide special environments and artistic spaces, distinct from traditional club and bar experiences, that showcase experimental or forward-thinking electronic music, for both artist/dj and listener/dancer alike.
Our events are advertised among friends and kindred community. We are intolerant to discrimination and harassment of any type and strive to create a safe, inclusive, and diverse space, which we see as integral and invaluable to our mission.
For artists and DJ’s in particular, we offer an invitation to perform in intimate environments where artistic freedom and experimentation are encouraged, offering alternatives to conventional club and venue spaces. Artist/DJ compensation includes reasonable pay, lodging, various accommodations, and travel expenses when possible.
