RE-EMERGENCE, REFLECTION, RENEWAL
David Gassner's (co-founder in 2016) was 18th&U's engine & driver for 5 years, offering his vision and tireless service to build something special. We welcomed Peggy Gannon as the new Executive Director in 2021, who provided clear and generous leadership through a significant transitional period; helping us weather the pandemic shutdowns, and notably oversaw the transition from volunteer staff to paid staff in 2022.
And now? We are thrilled to introduce Jasmin Lomax, our new Executive Director, who will buoy, sustain and grow 18th & Union through its next phase of development.
18TH & UNION: A VENUE WITH A VISION!
We partner with indie artists, offering a fully-appointed performance venue with no upfront deposit; in fact, no rental fee at all. Instead, 18th & Union shares the risk of producing, splitting net box office income with indie artists. Plus, all tickets are available on a sliding scale. This allows audiences & artists alike to take chances, and that's where the magic is.
