Video Highlights from AMC @ Night

Every year the Allied Media Conference presents musical acts and performances exploring the intersection of art and social change. This year, we organized “AMC @ Night,” an expanded, five-day music showcase supported by the Knight Arts Challenge. While the AMC brings together media makers, artists and activists for three days of hands-on workshops, panels and networking, the conference’s nighttime events are where AMCers come together and connect on the dance floor.

At AMC2015, nine different nighttime events took place over five days at venues throughout the city, showcasing both local and national acts such as THEESatisfaction, Las Cafeteras, Passalacqua, Stacey Hotwaxx Hale, and Monty Luke. We worked with Cass Corridor Films to capture some of the highlights.

Check out these videos which capture some of the high energy performances and killer dance moves from this year’s AMC @ Night.
