Do you love Janis Joplin? Lizzo? Nirvana? Chance the Rapper? Lady Gaga?
The independent venues that helped launch these superstars need your help. Since it could take many weeks, even months for the funding to flow, the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund, with The Giving Back Fund as its 501(c)3 fiscal sponsor, continues to raise money to assist the venues at greatest risk of permanently going under as we wait for the grants to be issued. Anyone wishing to donate can do so below.
We Need Your Help To Save Crowbar!
Thank you for your ongoing support of Crowbar. Together with you we have played a role in bringing Ybor City and Tampa to life and furthering the careers of countless artists. We were the first venue in the area to host artists like Little Dragon and Talib Kweli, which we could do because of our independence. Now independent venues like ours are at risk, and we need you to tell our Senators and Representatives how important Crowbar is to you and the Tampa/St. Pete area.

When this crisis began, independent music venues were the first to close, and we will be the last to open. While completely shuttered we have no revenue, our employees and artists are without jobs, and normal bills keep coming, regardless.
We have joined the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), a group of more than 1,200 independent music venues and promoters in all 50 states, to collectively urge Congress to help protect our industry by providing the financial support that is necessary for us to survive the shutdown and reopen once again.
Please join us and support our cause by calling and writing our Senators and Representatives today.
