WATO has partnered up with an exciting new project called, OUTPOST; short-term accommodation for ANY touring band with a bill that costs NOTHING!. Thats correct, Nothing.
These cosy spots provide a range of ‘stocking up’ materials, laundrettes, showers, working recording studios plus much more. The project relies on global brands donating to the cause and product gifting to keep the show on the road. Right now, these are based all over the United States with the idea of expanding globally.
“Each city with an Outpost is a revitalizing town on the rise. We encourage bands to spend time meeting locals, playing pop-up gigs that we can help facilitate and influencing the general culture of the regions. Imagine how special it will be when these local and loyal fans see you next year at the Grammy’s and get to say “I saw them at the Outpost with 20 fans!” – OUTPOST
This weekend, OUTPOST launched their newest post to date in Asbury Park, directly looking onto the beach in NJ. Filled with live music and drinks courtesy of local brands supporting the cause, we also helped out by asking the attendees to ‘stop using plastic straws!’. I think it was a successful night..
