Fox 59’s Melissa Crash and HI-FI’s Josh Baker discuss the challenges independent venues in Indianapolis are facing. As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, these venues and many others have been forced to cancel all live shows and several have closed their doors, uncertain of when they can reopen and how they will do so.
On Sunday, May 17th, a two hour streamed show, ‘Til We Meet Again, aired on Facebook and YouTube to raise awareness for the Indiana Independent Venue Alliance and help raise money to keep these venues in business. The event raised $50,000 and donations are still rolling in.
Even though the live stream is over, you can still donate and support your local independent venues – visit the IIVA’s website for more information.
