To raise awareness surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic’s impact on musicians, Bandcamp has decided to waive its revenue share on all sales placed Friday, Mar. 20. From midnight until midnight Pacific Time, all proceeds will go directly to the artists. If you’ve been meaning to donate or purchase music, now is a great time to do so. Below, find a list of 35 local bands and performers to help get you started.
Woolfolk initially planned on only releasing a single today, but after this hellacious week—which has left him and Strout temporarily unemployed and left home alone to jam for the time being—he managed to crank out an entire EP called Songs From the Quarantine Tent Vol. 1.
On their captivating debut single, Avery Leigh’s Night Palace step into a unique world that is hard to pin down and impossible to get bored of. The band is the creation of Athens’ own Avery Leigh Draut, a musician with a long list of credits and collaborations that includes everything from symphony orchestras to Jo Lampert of tUnE-yArDs. After several years of recording and touring, Draut and company have settled down to release their first single, which we’re excited to premiere here today.
A generation or so ago, back in the year 2000, I covered a concert as a photojournalist for the first time. The band I was photographing was KISS. They were on their farewell tour. I was shooting for Flagpole, which had recently taken a chance on me as a writer. I had never written. I had never studied writing. I did, however, love music, and had a massive interest in covering what was out there. After a few shows, Flagpole Music Editor Ballard Lesemann encouraged me to start taking a camera and reach out for a photo pass. So I did. I didn’t even have a professional camera and I’d certainly never studied that! But hey, why not?
