The Indiana Independent Venue Alliance (IIVA) is a nonprofit that provides resources, education and emergency relief for Indiana-based independent concert venues, music festivals and live music promoters. Live music venues were the first to be closed during the coronavirus pandemic and will likely be the last to open. These venues play a key role in Indiana’s live music ecosystem and play a vital role in the state’s culture and economy. With the concert industry fighting for survival, these small businesses have banded together to ensure fans have a place to see music when this passes.
Produced by three-time Emmy Award winner Matt Mays, “‘Til We Meet Again” provides an opportunity to meet and see faces behind the venues, and the many challenges they are currently facing. The program features performances from local, regional and national acts who all have a unique connection to these Hoosier stages. Fans can support the IIVA by donating during the show or purchasing Keep Indy Live merchandise. A 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Indiana Independent Venue Alliance.
It will be hosted by Indiana Venue Owners include appearances by Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett, author & writer John Green, Klipsch CEO Paul Jacobs and drummer Kenny Aronoff, among others.
