The FADER announced its second iteration of the Save Our Stages collection, which will benefit independent venues in Los Angeles.
The FADER has partnered with the popular relief platform This T-Shirt, The National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), and the number one Cannabis Oil Brand, Select who offered a generous donation which allowed the opportunity for the collection to happen.
This marks the second Save Our Stages collection for The FADER. It saw its first successful run earlier this year where it first partnered with This T-Shirt and launched the I F*CKING LOVE LIVE MUSIC T-SHIRT, an illustrated t-shirt highlighting nine different venues across Manhattan and Brooklyn. The one t-shirt received coverage across the industry and sold-out raising over $40,000 for the cause.
In homage to the classic tour t-shirt, The FADER & This T-Shirt will once again build on the National Independent Venue Association’s (NIVA) #SaveOurStages campaign, spotlighting independent venues across Los Angeles and the cultural impact they hold within their communities. 90% of NIVA members have reported that if the venues receive no federal emergency relief, they will be forced to close their doors forever.
To support the Save Our Stages collection, t-Shirts will be available for purchase at This T-Shirt’s official website or through Instagram Shopping at @buythistshirt for a limited time. Proceeds from all of the t-shirt sales will go directly to the venues listed on each shirt and to NIVA’s Emergency Relief Fund.
The Save Our Stages collection is an opportunity for artists and fans to wear their support for Los Angeles and offers a collaborative incentive to raise awareness and financial assistance for independent venues in Los Angeles, California.
The Los Angeles independent venues participating in the Save Our Stages collection are provided below. For those who want to support other venues and cities not represented in the first or second collection, fans can visit Save Our Stages’ official website for more information.
