Be Your Own +1

We miss live music. We miss encores and wristbands. We miss First Avenue.

As you know, First Avenue postponed or cancelled upcoming shows at all their properties due to the COVID-19 outbreak. It’s a substantial loss for them, their employees, the bands, and the entire community.

What you can do: Buy First Avenue gift cards and merch! Coffee tastes a little better out of those mugs, the Turf Club shirts make you 30% better looking, and there are even Brickmania Lego kits.

What you can also do: +1, the golden ale Surly brews with First Avenue, is available at your local liquor store. Buy a bunch of it.

Finally, and we can’t stress this enough: support the bands. We made a playlist of just some of the acts who had their March gigs shut down at the Mainroom, the Entry, the Turf, the Amsterdam, the Palace, and the Fitz.

Buy their albums. Get a t-shirt. Links to all the acts’ sites are below:
