We’ve had lots of fun over the last few years celebrating Record Store Day and helping to continue the legacy of local record store. And we’re excitied to share the news about a concert edition called “Live Music Night” that’s also helping to support musicians in need.
The multi-venue benefit event dubbed “Night of Sweet Relief” will be taking place on Saturday, October 15, 2011, and according to the website, “…hundreds of venues will support musician’s cause by building in a $1 donation component to their ticket price or door cover charge. By venturing out and supporting artists on stage you will also be supporting artists who can’t be there.”
The event is supported by all the big players in the concert industry such as Live Nation-Ticketmaster Ticketfly, Billboard, Ticketweb and several others. And they’re also having a contest to win free gear.
It sounds like a great way to lend a hand to struggling musicians and celebrate live music. And I hope you’ll have the chance to go to one the shows that night and show your support.
What’s Sweeter than Live Music
Very few things actually. But one thing that it just as sweet as going to the show is sharing stories about how live music has helped fans and artist who are struggling.
That said, we invite you to share your concert experiences about Live Music Night and other concert benefit moments, so they can be included in a future episode of Live Fix Radio.
