The Soundry is Northern Virginia’s art incubator: it’s an automobile shop converted into a working studio, stage, classroom, gallery, boutique, and coffee shop in Vienna, VA. Some of the most popular events that take place at The Soundry are the open mic nights, which includes open comedy nights on Wednesdays and open music on Tuesdays.
Jennifer Crawford is this week’s Super NoVA for her efforts to create a place for local artists. She and her husband opened The Soundry in December 2008, and it has since grown to include about 60 members. The Crawford's plan to open a second location in the future.
“I felt like this area has a lot of prosperity, but not a lot of personality,” said Crawford.
