  • The FCC awarded us our radio construction permit! We plan to have the Brick House radio station (WXBH) on the air by summer of 2006. We have to raise about $70,000 in order to build a fully-functioning studio. Our website, WXBH.org, will be up and running in the next couple of weeks, and there will be plenty of news and updates on that site as we continue to raise money and build the station.

  • Our art collective won a $1,000 grant for a women's life drawing class. We'll post more details if anyone is interested in participating.

  • Our bike workshop also won a $3,000 grant. The workshop meets every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM. The purpose of the workshop is to teach people how to fix and build their own bikes. If you have bike skills you'd like to share, or if you want to learn some skills, please stop by. It's free.

  • We also recently won a grant from the city to refurbish our air conditioning. However, we are still in need of money to complete this project, so all donations are welcomed and appreciated. Check our donations page.

  • A couple of people have agreed to teach yoga and bellydancing classes at the Brick House. If you are interested in either of these, please leave a message.

  • We've had to cut back on shows because of soundproofing issues. We need lots of money and volunteer labor to solve this problem. Again, please feel free to donate, or let us know if you want to help out.

  • COMING SOON: Our computer lab with high-speed Internet access!!

  • Upcoming events ...
    • July 25, $3: Al Burian (of Milemarker, Punk Planet, and Burn Collector) and Jessica Hopper (of Punk Planet and Hit It or Quit It) will both be reading some of their recent writing.
    • August 10, $3: It's a wizard rock show with HARRY AND THE POTTERS!

    Hi, I contacted you a while back about teaching guitar classes out there. Let me know if you're still interested; the email address I have for you doesn't seem to work anymore.

    Hey, we're definitely still interested. We had email problems a while back, but the address (brick at brickhouse dot org) should work now.
