“Jim and Greg talk about the impossible financial situation the live performance industry is in due to COVID 19. They talk with Katie Tuten, a co-owner of The Hideout in Chicago and Audrey Fix Schaefer, spokesperson for the 9:30 Club in DC among others. They’re both members of NIVA, the National Independent Venue Association, which was formed in response to the pandemic.
We also hear from Senator Amy Klobuchar, who co-authored the Save Our Stages act at the urging of NIVA. Save Our Stages is a $10 billion relief bill that has bipartisan support, including from the Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, who we also talk with.” – Sound Opinions
