Ever since the COVID-19 shutdown kicked in, we’ve done our best to keep this list updated. Do you know a music venue doing a fundraising campaign? Drop us a line or leave a comment.
SUPPORT GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE FOR VENUES
With independent clubs hit especially hard by the coronavirus shutdown, the National Independent Venues Association (NIVA), National Independent Talent Organization (NITO) and #WeMakeEvents North America are urging music fans to contact their legislators to pass federal assistance for these small businesses. The Save Our Stages Act S. 4258 from the U.S. Senate and the RESTART Act (S. 3814/H.R. 7481) from both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are currently in review in Congress. Access each organization’s petitions in the links above and customize before sending to your national elected representatives.
SUPPORT THE SCENE
With venues and bars shuttered, fundraising campaigns are underway for staff — house sound engineers, bartenders, security, door people, etc. and expenses.

■ Zebulon (GoFundMe and more).
■ The Airliner.
■ La Cita.
■ Amoeba Music.
SUPPORT MUSICIANS & CREW
