Tomorrow was supposed to be our 21st Save Music in Chinatown show. After years of coming this close, we were super amped to finally have our friends the Neighborhood Brats play for our cause before heading off to Las Vegas and Europe. And bring back our faves the Rough Kids now that they are all living in L.A. again. On top of that, our very own Linda Lindas were supposed to cap off three weekends of killer shows, coming off of a L.A. Times Festival of Books gig and then opening for Alice Bag at her record release party along with The Tissues.
Then the coronavirus came and everything got canceled. Crap.
We’re sad not to hang out with our family and friends, see a bunch of ripping bands, eat delicious cookies, and raise money for the music program at Chinatown’s elementary school at the Grand Star tomorrow. But we support doing what we can to get through this crisis.
Thanks to everyone for supporting our cause. The awesome bands who wanted to play until they couldn’t, the best bake sale crew, raffle donors, show goers, and anyone who helps to spread the word––we wouldn’t do it without you.
Maybe a new Linda Lindas song and video will make you feel better. Here’s a demo that Eloise recorded while sheltered in place.
Enjoy, share, and take care of each other out there. We miss you and want to see you on the other side of the curve!
