The idea of BRIM Sessions is pretty simple. Early on Sunday afternoons, we’re hosting one hour mini-concerts for musicians. We provide an astroturf rug to demarcate the performance area and minimal amount of electricity via a long industrial extension cord - our building is really old (it’s actually the oldest existing store front in the city of Dayton) and the electricity situation is not the greatest. We are not able to pay musicians for these concerts, but you are encouraged to put out you hat (or instrument case or a bucket or whatever makes sense to you) for tips.

We like to use our space and resources to help other businesses, non-profits, and artists build up their profile. Sharing our audiences is good for all of us. And every weekend between the beginning of May and the end of October, Fifth St. is closed to vehicular traffic for Out on 5th. We’ve been under utilizing this pedestrian-oriented environment. 


BRIM is a hats and accessories store located at the corner of Jackson St. and Fifth St. in the heart of Dayton’s Oregon District. We sell hats, but what we really do is help people to be their best, most confident self. We find great pleasure in seeing our customers blossom and be more fully themselves and we’re here to encouraging the creative expression of our entire community. We’re woman owned and have been in business for over 10 years, which feels impossible.
