  • Date / Time: 09/29/2013 : 5 PM
  • Location: Counter Culture
  • Address: Counter Culture,? Whitefield Road, Bangalore,
  • Entry: Free Entry

In a bid to fight the mindset against paying for live performance, we’ve just launched a campaign called #PayForTheArts. Every #PayForTheArts performance is free, but we have dropboxes all over the venue to encourage people to support the artists they’ve come to see. In live music especially, the free gig and guestlist culture creates a chain of impact that primarily affects the artists. We want people to start taking more consideration on a gig-by-gig basis and asking themselves: if I like this artist’s work so much why wouldn’t I support it? If you can help talented local bands as much as you do those who bring your favourite artist to your town or city, why wouldn’t you want to? It’s in everyone’s interest. Except this time, we leave the choice in their hands.

On the 29th of September, We Start this Series of gigs on Last Sunday of every month to encourage this campaign.
