There have been numerous close calls in the history of the planet that make it a miracle for life to exist today.

One such instance happened on 1989 when a massive asteroid (4581 Asclepius) nearly hit the earth. This day is commemorated annually on March 23 as people across the nation celebrate National Near Miss Day.

On March 22-23, 1989, a mountain-sized asteroid came within 500,000 miles of colliding with the earth. “On the cosmic scale of things, that was a close call,” said Dr. Henry Holt. Geophysicists estimate that collision with Asclepius would release energy comparable to the explosion of a 600 megaton atomic bomb. On March 31, 1989, nine days after its closest approach to Earth, the asteroid was discovered.

A collision would have had catastrophic effects on our planet. This is just one of the many reasons to be reminded of why it is both a miracle and a blessing for each one of us to be alive at this point in time. So, to celebrate life, let’s come together and enjoy good music and dance! We know everyone has different tastes in music, so we’re bringing together 4 talented local artists who produce their own music, and together, cover a variety of genres. Expect chill stuff in the early hours and increased intensity as the night progresses. Let’s party!!!

Squirrely Bass (experiential bass)

Pacifix (trap, future, wave)

Ice Cream Cult (lo-fi, hip hop)

Harbor Day (lo-fi, alternative, singer-songwriter)
