Vibes After Dark X Newark Radio Co-Op
Vibes After Dark continues to live up to its name and brings amazing energy to Newark every month. The night showcased amazing artists that are building the culture around us and celebrated the launch of the Newark Radio Co-Op. I was able to catch up with Alim Smith, the Delaware based artist known for his surreal meme paintings. Newark’s own Jay Golding was also live painting a beautiful massive canvas.

Local media talent get in formation for launch of Newark Radio Co-op
Britt Jade and her talented squad are ready to take over your airwaves…digitally.
The Newark resident has production credits everywhere from Viceland to Real Housewives of Atlanta and, most recently, was a content curator for Audible’s “Channels” app.
Nearly one year ago, Britt launched a crowdfunding campaign for what she called, at the time, Public Radio For All, with the goal of diversifying public radio programming with shows that run the gamut from politics and cultural news to music. The campaign was a success, raising 94 percent of its $4,000 goal with contributions from 52 radio heads and supporters.
Public Radio For All is now Newark Radio Co-Op, and Britt is teaming up with Vibes After Dark to celebrate the station’s coming-out with a launch eve party tonight at Index Art Center (237 Washington Street, Downtown Newark, 8 pm). Newark Radio Co-Op, which is located in Gateway Project Spaces in Gateway 2, then goes live on Saturday, November 18th.
