Independent Venue Week Launches Weeklong #IVW20 Fundraiser Auction

In addition to spotlighting programming in and by some of the country's most treasured live venues, Independent Venue Week, taking place between October 24 - 30, is hosting a memorabilia auction where net proceeds will be donated to the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund, providing much-needed assistance to independent venues and promoters.

Starting today (October 24), and through the end of #IVW20 (October 30), fans and collectors alike will have the chance to get their hands on one of 70+ pieces of music history in an effort to #SaveOurStages for the years of history to come.

Items up for auction include everything from two original paintings from #IVW20's Artist Ambassador, Alison Mosshart (The Kills/The Dead Weather), a pair of seats from the original Merriweather Pavilion, Al Bouchard's (Blue Oyster Cult) very own Fender Jaguar Bass, signed by the rock legend himself, a limited edition vinyl box set from Blue Note Records, curated by the legendary jazz label's president, Don Was, a stunning Epiphone "White Lightning" Explorer signed by Tommy "Spaceman" Thayer (KISS), courtesy from the Gibson Foundation, and much more.
