Kalamazoo State Theatre  

Patio & Bar: 5:00 PM | Live Music: 5:30 PM

State on the Street is back for select Fridays this Summer!  Join us outside the historic Kalamazoo State Theatre for State on the Street featuring Fake Baseball Friday, August 4!

We’ll have free live music outside our iconic Theatre, patio seating, drink specials, theatre tours available for purchase, and more! All of the events will be held on Fridays, with our patio and bar opening at 5PM and live music from 5:30-8:30PM!

Food for this event will be provided by PJW Creole Cuisine.

We also have a live painting demonstration from the incomparable Amy Lou Gieschen.


For those unfamiliar, Amy Lou Gieschen is a local Kalamazoo artist who specializes in photo representational acrylic landscape, figurative, and still life paintings. Her current work features 90s pop culture, B movie characters, and her favorite, “Big Foot” on repurposed paintings. She’s an avid hiker and backpacker and forever a Michigagirl. Her goal is to paint all the things. Amy will be doing a live painting of a large big foot with a music-legend inspirational twist. Her work can be found on display at One Well and on Instagram @amylgieschen.


Fake Baseball is an eclectic art-pop band based in Kalamazoo, MI. Fake Baseball bends pop music on its ear, and builds engaging soundscapes, with consideration toward making those booties drop. Come be bathed in the sweet and uneasy melancholy of a glitchy, introspective dream-zone, or wiggle your hips to an intricate groove with dazzling keys and horns that are best described as “stanky.”
