Rent Party features Maxine Metheney

| October 31, 2013

COSHOCTON – This month’s Rent Party at the Pomerene Center for the Arts will feature, Maxine Metheney with Joe Hardesty- Not Country Tonight.

Local musician and well known country music lover, Metheney will switch up her styling for a night of rock.

The fun starts at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1 and will wrap up around 9 p.m.

At the time of the Great Migration north (1910-1930), blacks emigrating from the south settled the problem of Harlem’s inflated rents by throwing parties. Furniture was moved to the outside walls, musicians and refreshments were brought in, card tables were set up out of the way of the dance floor, and the doors were opened in exchange for a few bucks.

In an effort to relieve stress on its monthly budget, the Pomerene Center has adopted/adapted the Rent Party to help meet its monthly gas bill. The doors are opened at 7 p.m. on First Friday evenings, October through April for great acoustic music presentations. Food also is available for $3 a plate. Suggested donation is $10 at the door. Make a reservation by calling 622-0326 or e-mailing [email protected].
