Earlier this year The FADER launched a range of merch aimed at raising funds for some of the many small venues in New York adversely affected by the COVID-19 crisis. Partnering with This T-Shirt, a relief platform founded by Dylan Hattem and Cassandra Aaron of DS Projects, Select Cannabis, and the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) we launched the Save Our Stages Collection.
The first drop focused on New York venues and today, with the pandemic showing no signs of slowing down and venues across the country at risk of extinction, we roll out an L.A. edition. Each of the iconic venues listed on the shirt will receive a portion of proceeds from sales, which will be donated into NIVA's Emergency Relief Fund. The Fund was created to help struggling venues across the United States in danger of eviction or closing down permanently due to restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The second iteration of the campaign will be available from November 24, exclusively from THIST-SHIRT.COM
