World famous guitar company D’Angelico recently launched Venue Spotlight, a unique fundraising movement created to give back to the city and stages of New York City.
For the next several weeks, D’Angelico will spotlight a different music venue who has launched a fundraiser in order to stay afloat while their doors are closed due to Covid-19. As D’Angelico donates to help each venue reach their goals, they ask that we all do the same—as well as spread the word by sharing this post and using #STAGEACOMEBACK.
D’Angelico’s first donation was $7,000 to help The Bitter End reach their fundraising goal. Currently, they’re supporting Arlene’s Grocery—a legendary rock club on the Lower East Side that has hosted everyone from Jeff Buckley to The Strokes to a weekly neo-soul jam at the heart of the scene. Arlene’s is a bedrock of New York City music, and they need our help. On January 7,2021 D’Angelico donated $15,000 to Arlene’s Grocery! And now they’re asking all of us to raise the next $15,000 – then D’Angelico will match the last $15,000. You can give your donation here: Arlene’s Grocery
Share this post, donate what you can, and spread the word! Together, we all can protect the heart of New York City’s iconic music scene. Together, we can #STAGEACOMEBACK.
