CoViD-19: Help For Musicians and Venues
Everyone is struggling right now, no doubt, but I've heard of some great resources that you might want to check out if you're a musician or worker who has been furloughed, lost work, or otherwise are losing income during this time.
NPR: Resources For Music Businesses And Industry Workers In Need Amidst The Pandemic
MusicCares: Recording Academy and MusiCares Launch Coronavirus Relief Fund
COVID-19 Freelance Artist Resources
New Music Solidarity Fund (offering $500 grants for musicians)
San Diego COVID-19 Community Response Fund
Conversely, if you're looking for ways to help out, we set up a PayPal for the Casbah to support the staff currently out of work.
Here's an article I wrote for SoundDiego with a list of venues and ways to help.
If you'd like to help keep things going here at sddialedin and have found this site to be a useful resource, we're certainly struggling here without Darren working and no telling how long this will carry on. You can Venmo me direct at @sddialedin or PayPal, too. As everyone would like to keep reminding you, every little bit helps. Truly.
