Coming into 2019, Open Media Foundation's future was uncertain. The nonprofit lost its contract to operate the city's cable-access channel in late 2018, raising questions about the group's sustainability.

But the media nonprofit is ending the year with a big First Friday fundraising bash celebrating its work in media education and production.

The fundraiser's surprise headliner, Nathaniel Rateliff, will offer a rare, intimate solo show in the OMF studios at 700 Kalamath Street.

The concert runs from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, December 6, and includes food from Blue Pebble and an open bar. Tickets are $50 and available at the Open Media Foundation website.

Open Media Foundation will also host its free First Friday event at 8 p.m. Musical acts Atlas and Tiffany Christopher and comedian Sammy Anzer will perform. The event will be broadcast on Denver Open Media's FM stations, 92.9 FM and 89.3 HD.
