SALONATHON’s FINAL MONDAY NIGHT AT BEAUTY BAR
FREE / 21+; Opening ceremony at 12pm
Salonathon started in the summer of 2011. Nearly seven years later, its iconic run at Beauty Bar on Monday nights is coming to a glorious close to make way for what is next. It's time to celebrate the past 340 weeks of emerging, underground and genre-defying art and community in true marathon style!
