Join us for our monthly live music dance party, Tribal Brew! 
The last Friday of every month from 7:30 - 9:00 PM.  Next Brew is January 29.
At Upper Cup Coffee Co., 79 Parsons Ave, Columbus, OH.

Mark your calendars for the 4th Annual Tribal Brew Extravaganza on January 29!  For this special Brew, we invite all our amazing special guests from 2015 to retake the stage and donate all the tips to a favorite charity.  Look for appearances by Marca Mehirah, Chandara Gamal, Leyla Billman, Sacred Shimmy, & more!  

Join us for boisterous and magical dancing and drumming by Sacred Shimmy, an awesome set by our special guest, and then lots of open dancing and drumming where you can shake what you've got. Try out the new moves you learned in class this month or bust out something funky. Grab your drum and play along or just vibe with the organic feel of live drumming - we are making space for you.  

As always, the roasters and grinders of Upper Cup Coffee Co. will be on hand to make delicious drinks. Finery is welcomed. Admission is free. Tips are appreciated. Please note, show starts promptly at 7:30 PM.
