A Word About the Tragedy in Oakland…

 

The tragic events in Oakland on Friday, December 2nd have hit our community hard. So many young, talented, dear friends have left us much too soon.

Love and communion through music and arts is at the center of everything we do as Restless Nites, and is the lifeblood of so many of us who come out to see friends and heroes perform, often in spaces that are off the beaten path.

The fire at the Oakland Ghostship leaves an indelible mark on us all, and reminds us to hold our friends and loved ones close, and to work together to protect what we share.

Its in that spirit that Restless Nites will be working diligently to ensure that the spaces we gather in are safe, that our friends feel confident & comfortable in joining us there, and the memories of those lost in Oakland are honored in everything we do.

Please make a donation today to support the families of our lost friends in Oakland, and join us for one of the many upcoming ways you can get involved to lend a hand…
