BRICK is a crypto-meets-music venture that continues to strengthen the link between the music industry and the crypto sphere. Co-founded by musicians Lee Spielman and Garrett Stevenson, BRICK promises to be a “music venue by night and a community-run creative space by day.”. In addition, it also promises to function as a metaverse music venue.
BRICK: What we know so far
BRICK is the brainchild of Lee Spielman and Garrett Stevenson, who toured with hardcore punk band Trash Talk for more than 10 years. They drew inspiration from the DIY punk scene and together developed the concept for this new venture.
Described as “a music venue by night and a community-run creative space by day,”, it will serve as an artistic hub. It hopes to be a place for live concerts, workshops and comedy shows – but also for financial literacy classes. This is because BRICK is collaborating with Ledger to educate artists about crypto and crypto security.
In addition to a brick-and-mortar headquarters, the project will also buy land in the metaverse. Here, it will hold virtual concerts as well as crypto classes. All in all, it is safe to say that BRICK sounds like a musician’s paradise.
