A series of unique live music events featuring limited edition merch and an open bar benefiting 1 + 1 = Music - a program that allows underprivileged children access to music education, workshops and after-school programs and employs active independent artists as teachers and mentors. Each night features established artists giving back to their community and the up-and-coming artists of tomorrow by playing a live show at a unique and intimate DTLA venue - Saturn Creative. Only 175 tickets will be available along with limited edition merch (designed by local visual artists) and an open bar. It’s a rare opportunity for the artists to return to their roots and fans to experience seeing their favorite artists in an intimate setting - all for a great cause. All profits raised at our events benefit I HEART’s 1 + 1 = Music* (additional program details below).

Do what you can with where you are and what you've got...
I HEART Inc is an incorporated 501(c)(3) non-profit located in both Los Angeles and Oakland CA, a grassroots organization run by founder and CEO Arrica Rose. Our ultimate aim is to empower independent artists and their communities by encouraging artists to use the resources at their disposal (their creativity and their fanbase) to help raise money for charitable programs and organizations within their community. In the process of raising awareness and funding we also expose participating artists to new fans as well as fellow artists who are utilizing their creativity to inspire change locally and globally. I HEART has been fortunate to enlist an amazing team of sponsors and supporters including Willie Nelson, Crosby Stills and Nash, Iron & Wine/Sub Pop Records, Rachel Maddow, Jack White, Fran Drescher, Olivia Newton-John, Jackson Browne, Smart Water, Martin Guitars, Dan Akroyd's Crystal Head Vodka, Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios, LA Weekly, Amoeba Records, Hotel Cafe and many more.

I HEART's 1+1= Music is a non-profit program (operating in both Los Angeles and Oakland, CA) that aims to educate, empower, and enable students artistically through music. In keeping with I HEART's mission to integrate independent artists and their communities, it is our pledge to provide a unique opportunity to students regardless of financial restraints and facilitate the mentoring of tomorrow's artists by the up-and-coming artists of today. Our classes and programs are all taught by active independent artists seeking to give back to their community through teaching their craft while still continuing to pursue their own artistic goals. Any donation to 1+1= Music thereby benefits both the students and artists participating in our program. We offer full scholarships, standard and sliding scale rates. When a student who is capable of paying a reasonable rate enrolls in classes they are also assisting an underprivileged student by affording him or her the opportunity to enroll in our music education program as well. It is our belief that a thriving community is an integrated one that affords opportunities to all of its constituents. Our partnerships with local artists, businesses, benefactors, and schools within the community contribute to making this ideal possible.

Saturn is a multi-functional space in the heart of DTLA that accommodates photo shoots, gallery shows, private events and pop-ups. 14-foot ceilings, pristine white walls and poured concrete floors make it the perfect blank canvas for any vision. Saturn aims to provide a versatile affordable space for creatives, one that unites artists in a variety of different mediums. In addition to providing space for a wide range of events we also curate visual, cultural, and music based experiences and work with local non-profits to give back to our community. https://saturn-creative.com/
