UPDATE: Fri, May 1
It’s been a helluva six weeks since the Bay Area and the country began sheltering in place. Through the sheer generosity of this community we raised over $55,000 from 800+ family, friends and fans. The City of SF gave us a grant, and we’re making progress on emergency Federal loans.
Through all this, us Californicorns have made it safely into hibernation. But as the situation drags out, we know we’re not out of the woods yet.
So we’re re-tooling what we can offer to keep this community #TogetherWherever. We know millions of folks are in precarious positions all over the world, and we’re right there with you. So if you’re looking for some fun distractions, and/or ways to support PianoFight, check these out:
Virtual Night at PianoFight Thank You Show
– If you’ve donated to our crowdfunding campaign already, you’ll be getting a special invite to the first ever Virtual Night at PianoFight. From the safety and comfort of your couch-home-office-kitchen you can experience the fun shows and wild characters you regularly encounter in a night at the venue. This show is happening on Saturday, May 16 at 6pm. Everyone who donates by Thurs, May 14 at 11:59pm PST via PayPal / check / Venmo (@PianoFightSF) / Patreon will get an invite with a link and password. Hope to see you there!
– Our brand new / special Cali-quaran-corn tees are available here! And we have our classic logo hoodies or tees on offer as well. Keeping this community #TogetherWherever is our main goal right now, so join in with some stylish custom apparel you can wear anywhere you’re able to go like around the house or onto your porch.
The Virtual Venue and Tip Jar
– Our Virtual Venue is still going strong! Wednesday through Saturday nights are booked with your favorite regular PianoFight acts to provide you with some excellent escapism, belly-laugh-inducing Zooms or dreamy music to make dinner to. Each artist is posting their Venmo links so you can hang, listen, laugh, dance, and tip the artists in the process. Virtual Venue Schedule
Share Share Share….
– If you’re strapped for cash too – and believe us, we hear you – you can still help by sharing any and all of these. If you do share something, tag us (FB, IG, Twitter), use the hashtag #TogetherWherever, and let us know a favorite memory you have of PianoFight or what you’re missing most about the place.
Every dollar received and any support given is really appreciated. The money is put to use keeping the bills paid or set aside and earmarked for the costs associated with restarting this beast once shelter-in-place is lifted.
Thanks again for everyone’s love and support during this time. It’s meant the world. We look forward to seeing you under the un-hibernated Californicorn soon for a beer and a show once we get through this.
Lots of Love,
Dan, Duncan, Kevin, Rob
