Today (March 5, 2021) – as part of Bandcamp Friday – we’re plugging a release to benefit the staff of Michigan music venue Mac’s Bar who have all been laid-off for just shy of a year due to COVID-19. One of these staff members happens to be my partner (and I’ve worked there on and off as a sound tech for several years as well) so I can say with direct experience that we were all expecting a fairly lucrative year for live music and had the rug pulled out unexpectedly with no safety net. Prior to last year serving and contract work within the music industry was actually always a pretty safe bet for employment, especially for those of my persuasion that leave town for extended periods to tour, etc. Long story short-ish, we all want to be able to play the stages of independent music venues and have our industry folks be able to come back, so a great roster of bands donated songs, including our own The Wild Honey Collective (lead singin’ by one of these laid-off Mac’s bartenders), Cavalcade, The Plurals, Pancho Villa’s Skull, Rodeo Boys, Flatfoot, Foxgrave, Grey Matter, The Lippies, Heartsick, Silktail, Dogleg and many more, totaling 24 tracks! We’re suggesting a $10 donation but any little bit helps.
