The launch of Sustain The Scene in Los Angeles (and Palm Springs) on Friday, March 12 sets its sights to help save our favorite independent music venues that have been shut down by COVID-19 for a year.
Beginning March 12, local music fans will be able to support their favorite venues by ordering food, beverages, cocktails and custom merch through Postmates, and on select Fridays & Saturdays, fans from all over the world can tune into brand new livestream concerts, live on Twitch, and on-demand via YouTube following the broadcast. The first concert will be livestreamed on Friday, March 12 from 8-10pm PST, featuring performances by Girlpool, Vinyl Williams and MIKE/dj blackpower at Lodge Room and hosted byJesse Camp and Nina Tarr.
Sustain The Scene is a groundbreaking, new nonprofit initiative from dublab, Postmates and Restless Nites to help save the music scene by benefiting the iconic, independent music venues that have been shut down by COVID-19 since early 2020 and are at risk of closing permanently. Beginning March 12, 2021 in Los Angeles, Sustain The Scene is helping shuttered independent music venues reopen for delivery to return much-needed revenue to participating venues. Sustain The Scene will provide groundbreaking and crucial avenues for local communities to support their favorite independent venues by ordering food, drinks and merch, and music fans from all over the world can safely experience livestream performances from the iconic venues they know and love at home.
Sustain The Scene will reopen music and nightlife venues throughout Los Angeles first, beginning March 12, 2021, including exclusive new food & beverage menus, cocktail packages, custom co-branded merch and gift cards, that can later be redeemed for concert tickets, all available to order through Postmates. The first round of venues launching includes The Regent, Lodge Room, El Cid, Catch One, The Comedy Store, Akbar, The Eagle, The Lash, 1720 and ETA in Los Angeles and The Alibi in Palm Springs, and more will roll out in the coming weeks.
