On December 19th at 7pm Light Rail Studios in San Francisco will stream Because The Night II: Dear Santa. All I Want For Christmas Is Live Music. A Fundraiser For The Independent Venue Alliance of San Francisco. It will be a holiday celebration to remind everyone how important our venues are to our city, and without your help, or Santas help, we won’t survive. There will be live music, interviews, pre-recorded sets, an incoherent host, and plenty of holiday cheer!

San Francisco, nightlife isn’t just a cultural benefit for the City; it is also a major economic driver. According to a 2018 update of the Controller’s Office economic impact study, over 3,850 nightlife establishments in San Francisco employed over 63,000 workers, and generated an estimated $7.2 billion in revenue for the city.

Please help keep the music alive!

About the IVA:
The Independent Venue Alliance (IVA) Relief Fund aims to support independent music venues in San Francisco. With closures due to COVID-19, independent venues across San Francisco have had to close, with no idea when they'll be able to open to host live shows again. Independent venues provide a cultural service to the community, allowing up-and-coming bands and musical artists a chance to gain a following while creating a community space for artists and showgoers. Money donated to IVA will be disbursed to local venues to help cover costs during COVID-related closures. Your donation is tax deductible through fiscal sponsorship by The Giving Back Fund, a 501c3 organization.
