Independent Venue Week Unleashes Full U.S. Schedule July 8-14

Next week is a very important music support week.  While there is a time and place for giant stadium tours and whatnot, but the launchpad of most musicians start at small (sometimes not so small) independent venues.  July 8-14 is Independent Venue Week and was inspired by Record Store Day where venues who also fall under the IVW Banner.  2019 will be the sophomore year of the week in the U.S., where the U.K. just concluded their seventh running which was founded by Sybil Bell.

In the U.S., IVW is put on by independent music marketing firm Marauder. The company’s co-founder Rev. Moose said in a statement: “We’re incredibly excited to see this initiative continue to grow after its successful first year.”

“These critical, open-minded spaces drive their local music markets. Independent Venue Week is an opportunity to build camaraderie and community through a week of shows.”

An “independent” music venue is loosley defined as where the owners can own no more than nine total venues, that the venue’s primary programming is live music, and that the building can’t be owned by a company that primarily does something other than music.

Grammy award winning Fantastic Negrito was previously announced as this year’s IVW artist ambassador. He said in a statement at the time of the announcement: “Fantastic Negrito started playing on the streets, and independent venues gave us our first shot. In a business that doesn’t know what to do with artists that don’t fit in a box, they’re on the front lines, bringing great live music to people everywhere.” Last year’s IVW artist ambassador was Chuck D of Public Enemy and Prophets of Rage.
