Launch Party Press Release


The Baltimore Video Collective, a new non-profit organization dedicated to building a world-class home-video collection for the Baltimore community, is excited to announce its launch party. Taking place the evening of Saturday, December 1, 2012 at Windup Space, this benefit show will feature live music, comedy, video art, and a dance party. 

Included in the evening will be live music from Horse Lords (Ehse Records) and Peals (formerly Believers, featuring members of Future Islands and Double Dagger); videos by Ben O’Brien and Alan Resnick; comedy by Mickey Freeland and Ben O’Brien; and a dance party courtesy of DJ Secret Weapon Dave.

Admission to this special event is $8 – or only $5 with the donation of one or more working-condition commercial DVDs and/or blu-rays for the collection. All proceeds from the evening will benefit the Baltimore Video Collective.

The Baltimore Video Collective is a volunteer group comprised of members of Baltimore’s arts community with a combined five decades’ experience working in the home-video business. The BVC is working toward opening a collectively owned rental store in Baltimore, operating on a membership basis. The organization is already in the process of building a substantial home-video collection of all eras, regions, and genres on VHS, DVD, and blu-ray formats.

The Windup Space is located at 12 W. North Avenue, on the northwest corner of Charles St. and North Ave. in Baltimore’s Station North Arts and Entertainment District. Doors will open at 8pm, with the evening’s entertainment starting at approximately 9pm.

THE BVC operates as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization under fiscal sponsorship from the Greater Homewood Community Corporation.
