They've been around for over 12 years, but just reopened in a larger space in the old Easthampton Town Hall building on Main St in April 2010. With a small gallery and 230 person capacity room, Flywheel hosts all kinds of events, from local artists to musicians to national acts like Grass Widow, the Elephant 6 Collective and tUnE YarDs.
This year, Flywheel is looking to raise funds for a new air conditioning system, soundproofing in the space and equipment upgrades to support a community outreach project to get local teens involved in learning live mixing skills.
Wilco, Jeff Mangum, J Mascis, Thurston Moore, K Records and others have donated raffle items for supporters. You can check out the full list and make your contribution through PayPal on http://www.flywheelarts.
