Bandcamp holding COVID-19 fundraiser today
Friday, March 20, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano
Given the cancellation of SXSW, the calling off of tours and the shuttering of venues across the city, this has been an especially rough time for musicians. As National Public Radio has reported, Bandcamp will be forgoing its share of Friday sales, making this an easy and safe way to support local musicians directly. In a letter directly to would-be listeners, Bandcamp CEO and co-founder Ethan Diamond writes, “It may sound simple, but the best way to help artists is with your direct financial support, and we hope you’ll join us on Friday and through the coming months as we work to support artists in this challenging time.” Buy an album or two from your favorite band.
