The Flint Local 432 is an all ages, non-profit 501(c)(3), substance free music venue and community oriented organization located in historic downtown Flint. We are a program under Red Ink Flint, a community based arts organization seeking to build a stronger community through the arts.
The “Local” has played host to thousands of bands since 1985– from mid-80’s punk superstars Black Flag, 7Seconds and ALL, to groundbreaking bands such as Fugazi, Superchunk, Spitboy, Suicide Machines, Mustard Plug, Less Than Jake to some of today’s most popular acting including My Chemical Romance, Coheed & Cambria, Avenged Sevenfold, Yellowcard and our own Chiodos and The Swellers.
The Local was founded to provide a venue for local bands to play, while promoting an inclusive all-ages environment, and that remains our primary focus. All-ages music venues are important because young people are continually excluded from participating in music due to age restrictions.
We accommodate national, regional, and state bands when possible, along with hosting a variety of arts and cultural events that are usually less noisy but no less vital.
