Thanks to Rolling Stone, we now have a pretty exhaustive list of organizations that are helping musicians and support staff through the COVID-19 crisis.
For months now, I’ve been championing causes like Bandcamp Friday and other ways we can financially support local artists and gig workers, as well as local independent venues. Rolling Stone magazine has now come out with a long list of organizations–both national and international–that are providing financial support to music industry workers as they wait out the Coronavirus pandemic. From Sweet Relief–which assists artists facing medical issues–to Crew Nation–Live Nation’s multi-million dollar effort to prop up crew members–there are over a dozen organizations you can give to and show your support.
It’ll be awhile until we can all rock out live together, so let’s do what we can in the meantime to make sure there will be bands and venues ready to go once it’s safe to rock out again. Click here for the full list and give what you can.
