Support Small's!

This past year has been really rough on everyone, but especially on music venues. Their doors have been closed for over a year and although we are starting to possibly see a light at the end of the tunnel, one thing that we have learned from COVID is that nothing is guaranteed. Some venues have held fundraisers, some have been able to secure grants, some have done both. But even that is barely enough to stay afloat. 

Small's in Hamtramck is one of our all time favorite local venues and bars, and it is ran by some of the best people around. They have managed to keep their head above water throughout the pandemic, but it hasn't always been easy. They've sold merch. They've hosted carryout pop-ups with Renegade Kitchen. This week, they are doing the best fundraiser of them all! Small's has teamed up with their musician friends to release a compilation. The album will feature songs from 49 bands. The list of bands includes: Flogging Molly, Pigface, Descendents, ACTORS, The Suicide Machines, Assemblage 23, NOFX, Easy Action, Supersuckers, Ego Likeness, Chris Shiflett, Tim Barry, Heavy Water Factory, Thee Trash Brats Legacy, Haujobb, Murphy's Law, Josie Pace, Less Than Jake, Stoneburner, Some Uncoordinated Bastards-S.U.B, Koffin Kats, PIG, The Business, RELIC, Swingin' Utters, The dramedy, GRENDEL, Against the Grain, The Goddamn Gallows, BANG BANG, Heads Will Roll, Telegraph, Ricky Rat, The Amino Acids, Avoid One Thing, Schedule IV, Stone Clover, The Alison Lewis Band, Grande Nationals, Steve Harvey Oswald, Glass Chimera and J. Navarro & the Traitors. Some of these songs are even unreleased tracks that you won't be able to get anywhere else! You can pick up your copy this Friday, May 7th at 3 a.m. on Small's Bandcamp page:

Coincidentally, this Friday is Bandcamp Friday, which means that Bandcamp will be waiving their fees. So, make sure you pick up the compilation on Friday so Small's can get all of the proceeds! 

We've all been through a lot over the past year and we're so close to being able to get back together and enjoy live music once again! Let's make sure that Small's is one of the places that we can go to do that!
