Why We Should Help

The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected nearly every aspect of life and business.  Across the country, thousands of local venues, promoters and bookers have experienced devastating losses of revenue and increased debt.  Nearly 90% have suggested they run the risk of significant financial hardship or closure in the coming months.  We have already lost countless venues in Pittsburgh since the beginning of the pandemic.  While the CARES Act, PPP Loans and other stimulus programs have provided assistance to many aspects of our local community and businesses, these programs often overlooked the unique needs and attributes of our local music venues.

About sos2020

“The song was intended to share the sense of frustration and concern I had for all of our Pittsburgh music venues and the performers, promoters, and support staff directly affected by this pandemic.”
– Eric Rodger

Written by Eric Rodger (Royal Honey), “SOS 2020” is a plea to help save our stages.

Produced by Anthony Lamonde (Rocky of The Borstal Boys).
