Amid the recent artist posts of the grim realities of modern touring thanks to exploding costs, logistical logjams, and shrinking possibilities for artists and venues to make a return on revenue, all the players in the live music space are finding themselves in a bind.

Proudly support the venues important to you and buy A fucking ticket, the tried and true best way to make sure that their favorite rooms can continue to exist for future generations. 

To encourage others to buy a fucking ticket, deck yourself out with the newest Independent Venue Week Merch.
