When I moved to #atlanta I was asked why don't the #housemusic #artist who live here support the local scene? I said I would and I've put my money where my mouth is with the opening of @wildpitch_atl Now my question to #ATL is, Are YOU going to support your local scene by supporting the artist & DJ's of Atlanta's 1st #Housemusic #techno #acidhouse #EDM #Artist owned club? The housemusic culture was built on the foundation of a strong love and loyalty to this music. If you feel the same and are dedicated to this amazing community which stretches across the globe then Wildpitch is your home. Straight, Gay, white, black, no matter what religious beliefs My House is your House, Now Let us House you! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ We Are WildPitch! Taking back our music one weekend at a time!! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ
