Quad Cities Bands Perform Fundraiser for Family Resources
The Whiskey Stop in East Moline will be host to a fundraiser for Family Resources on Friday, July 9, 2021.
Without getting too in the weeds here...a great thing has come from what looked and sounded like a horrible situation. The original show/festival had to be cancelled due to some allegations about the festival organizers.
The bands who pulled out of the original show wanted to turn things around to the positive and help the support groups for sexual assault victims. Which is how Family Resources came into play.
“This is the beginning of more conversations in the QC music spheres about sexual violence and how to enact more prevention and action measures”
We are a coalition of local musicians and creatives raising funds for Family Resources to support victims of sexual violence in the Quad Cities. On Friday, July 9th from 5-10PM, we will be putting on a show at the Whiskey Stop in East Moline, featuring six bands of diverse genres. The line up includes incredible local talent: Murnau, Ross Clowser Trio, Mirabilia, Yung Flvy, BN WhoIAm (ft. Crealot and K1ng Supr3m3), and Alyx Rush.
Thank you to the Whiskey Stop for offering their indoor/outdoor venue for this event, and thank you to The River Music Experience, WVIK, and Family Resources for partnering with us to envision a community where we are all able to thrive in mutual respect, protection, and care. Everyone deserves to enjoy music safely, and it's up to us, as a community, to ensure such spaces exist. We can start by standing in solidarity against sexual violence and supporting survivor services in our community.
Admission to the show is simply being able to show proof of a donation to the GoFundMe page you can find here or you can donate directly at the show.
When: Friday, July 9th, 2021 from 5PM-10PM
Where: Whiskey Stop, 726 15th Ave East Moline, IL 61244
This event is for all ages!
