Throughout over 60 major cities in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia, RAW: natural born artists aims to promote up-and-coming artists with the platform for exposure to the greater public. And as testament to the amount of talent within our neck of the woods, RAW will be hitting up Orange County tonight with a cavalcade of musical guests, fashion designers, filmmakers, artists and photographers, and more. Called Paramount, this all-local showcase includes a fashion show from designers like Stella Lemuse, Soul Goddess Jewelry and more, while Joe Findley, We The Ones, Kid Bloom and The Bash Dogs rock the Yost Theater stage. Then there's a screening of filmmaker Alexa Polar's film Speakeasy to Me, art installations, live hair and make-up displays, and so much more. Cocktail attire is requested for this awesome event.
