Live From Bloomington began in 1985 as a Union Board project to raise awareness about hunger. Each year, submissions are collected from area musicians and artists and compiled for a CD that captures the current Bloomington scene. The two-day annual club events complement the album by allowing all of the selected musicians to take the stage in multiple Bloomington venues and perform for their community.
