ABOUT THE FRONT PORCH
Established in Washington, DC in 2004, The Front Porch is a multi-genre performance arts community event that centers around Spoken Word, acoustic soul, and Hip Hop music. The small intimate event has been a staple specifically in Black LGBTQ and progressive performance spaces, and celebrated for being an inclusive event where all are welcome. The Front Porch doesn’t really have a target demographic, beyond people who appreciate creative expression for all kinds of people by all kinds of people: black and non-black, gay and straight and in between, from various class and geographic experiences, coming to celebrate work rooted in truth, vulnerability, and integrity of featured artists.
The Front Porch: Ugly Sweater Edition aims to offer a fun-filled way to bring many of us together over the holiday season understanding that while some of us have loving families we go home to, others do not. Understanding this, we continue to build community and culture in Greater Cincinnati through soulful music, poetry, Hip-Hop, and storytelling in truth through the theme of "Chosen Family".The show will feature resident DJ Kaotic (Cincinnati), and will be hosted by Mikhaila "Statuesque" Henderson, while features will consist of Anson Cotton, Sugar Renee, Tracy Walker, as well as founder Tim'm West, performing numbers from his recent Prodigal Son release. The Front Porch has consistently been committed to being a space where LGBTQ people and our straight allies and friends can come together under one roof to enjoy high-quality, independent artists who are all too often marginalized in mainstream radio. As was said by one faithful audience member who’d travel to different cities to attend The Front Porch, It’s a $100 dollar quality concert for $10. I didn’t know who some of these artists were and now they are among my favorite.”
The Ugly Sweater Edition Front Porch will be held at Four Points by Sharaton Cincinnati North in its Meridian Ballroom. A discounted "PorchTea" holiday cocktail will be created by Ty Fletcher for purchase and the venue has a menu.
