Unfortunately I don't have any new good news to report. I have decided to cancel all remaining shows in 2020. We are looking forward to returning with Live Music next year! We would also like to say that we support the venues that are open and the work of the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law fighting for the rights of business owners. If you are a band looking to gig in 2021 you can email [email protected] so we have you in our database going forward. Sorry to the bands and fans ready to return we will be back.

The Save Our Stages Act is a critical piece of federal legislation that would provide $10 billion for six months of financial support to keep live performing venues afloat and preserve an economic sector shuttered since mid-March. #SaveOurStages

Small venues and performing arts centers were the first to close and will be the last to re-open. They arguably represent the industry hardest hit by the pandemic. They are completely shuttered small businesses in need of support in order to survive until it is safe to re-open.

These venues are economic multipliers, community builders, educators, and beloved institutions, driving tens of millions in attendance each year. Sadly, they will have no revenues from ticket sales for some time. These venues drive significant spending at other businesses, as much as $12 for every dollar spent on a ticket in small music venues to $5 million a month in economic impact from larger regional centers. In cities and towns across America restaurants, bars, hotels, airports, taxis, and retail shops, our communities will suffer without these significant economic drivers.

Closing our stages impact the entire live performance economy and ecosystem in America – artists, talent agents, stagehands, ushers, security, restaurants & concessions, artist managers, tour bus industry, production, radio/social media/tv/print advertising, record companies, and many others.

Save our Stages is a critical bridge for independent venues to survive until they can re-open safely and successfully and start to inspire our country #saveourstages

After careful consideration we have decide to postpone/reschedule all of our restart plans for July. No events will be happening in July. We don't feel it is the right time to be re-opening and want to be able to create a safe environment for our employees and guests. All August events are currently still on, and planned at half capacity seated. We love and miss you all !
