Alternative art, music show set for this weekend

Want something different to do on Saturday night? The Sabine CounterCulture Movement, that group of bliss-filled purveyors of good vibes, are coming together for their first ever audio and visual art extravaganza, which will be held on Saturday, March 31 from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the historic Many Train Depot.

“I love the fact that we have so many talented artists in Sabine,” said Daniel Jones, co-host of the Sabine CounterCast, which is an internet-based podcast featuring art, music, activities, and geek/pop culture with a local twist. “I’m glad that the Depot Art Guild will allow us the use of their space to exhibit these young artists. This is absolutely unreal to several of the artists, who may not have received recognition otherwise.”
