"There's no charge for it.  We'd like it to be a free environment -- free of charge but also free in spirit," says Marchawn Lyons, organizer of the event.


A brainchild of Marchawn and his cousin, Sean Lyons, the Urban Tree House was conceived as a pathway for young artists.  "We wanted to merge amateur and already established artists, provide an outlet for creativity, gain participation by younger local talent, provide entertainment, have a good time."

Though still being developed, the program will feature visual art, a comic, music by "Nova Free Jazz Trio" and "Lower East Side Connection," a young hip-hop band, poetry both with and without music, by Chuck Joy and others.
