This weekend, a virtual tribute aimed at saving Indiana music venues will stream online.
Local musicians and celebrities are working to raise support for venues facing possible permanent closure because of the pandemic, and Molly June, singer-songwriter is one of them. She performed her song on “Indy Style” today and told us a little bit about the event.
The Indiana Independent Venue Alliance (IIVA) has partnered with Klipsch and 92.3 WTTS to present ‘Til We Meet Again: A Tribute to the Writers & the Rooms, a virtual two-hour tribute to benefit Indiana music venues.
The Indiana Independent Venue Alliance (IIVA) is a not-for-profit organization that provides resources, education and emergency relief for Indiana-based independent concert venues, music festivals and live music promoters. Live music venues were the first to be closed during the pandemic and will be the last to open. These venues play a key role in Indiana’s live music ecosystem and play a vital role in the state’s culture and economy. With the concert industry fighting for survival, these small businesses have banded together to ensure fans have a place to see music when this passes.
Produced by three-time Emmy Award winner Matt Mays, ‘Til We Meet Again provides an opportunity to meet and see faces behind the venues, and the many challenges they are currently facing. Fans can support the IIVA by donating during the show or purchasing Keep Indy Live merchandise. One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit the Indiana Independent Venue Alliance.
The stream is happening Sunday, May 17 from 6 – 8 p.m, live on Facebook and Youtube.
