WHAT: The Indiana Independent Venue Alliance (IIVA) has partnered with Klipsch and 92.3 WTTS to present ‘Til We Meet Again: A Tribute to the Writers & the Rooms, a virtual two-hour tribute to benefit Indiana music venues.
The Indiana Independent Venue Alliance (IIVA) is a not-for-profit organization that provides resources, education and emergency relief for Indiana-based independent concert venues, music festivals and live music promoters. Live music venues were the first to be closed during the pandemic and will be the last to open. These venues play a key role in Indiana’s live music ecosystem and play a vital role in the state’s culture and economy. With the concert industry fighting for survival, these small businesses have banded together to ensure fans have a place to see music when this passes.
Produced by three-time Emmy Award winner Matt Mays, ‘Til We Meet Again provides an opportunity to meet and see faces behind the venues, and the many challenges they are currently facing. The program features performances from local, regional and national acts who all have a unique connection to these Hoosier stages. Fans can support the IIVA by donating during the show or purchasing Keep Indy Live merchandise. One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit the Indiana Independent Venue Alliance.
WHEN: Sunday, May 17 | 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. EST streaming on Facebook Live and YouTube.

ABOUT THE INDIANA INDEPENDENT VENUE ALLIANCE:
The Indiana Independent Venue Alliance (IIVA) is a not-for-profit organization that empowers and preserves Indiana’s live music community. IIVA is an alliance of Indiana-based independent concert venues, live music promoters and music festivals. As small business owners, the IIVA community plays a critical role in our state’s music and culture economy. These cultural hubs are centerpieces of our neighborhoods. As businesses they provide highly skilled jobs, contribute to the tax base and drive tourism dollars.
IIVA businesses were among the first to be closed during the current pandemic and will be the last to open. The financial recovery process far exceeds opening the front doors, requiring solutions unique to this industry to keep our employees, fans and artists safe. The organization is relentlessly dedicated to protecting and supporting our community of independent statewide venues.
The IIVA is an active member of NIVA, National Independent Venue Association.
