Bandcamp to Donate to ALCU
Several advocate groups, as well as the general public, are up in arms due to Trumps suspension of the refugee program and the 90 day ban on Muslims entering the United State from 7 countries deemed ‘terror hot spots’.
Bandcamp, the online artist platform and digital music retailer, revealed that in response to the ban they will donate all the proceeds they make this Friday the 3rd to the American Civil Liberty Union (ALCU).
They intend to support the tireless work that the ALCU are doing to combat this humanitarian issue. NME has the full story.
59th Annual Grammy’s Most Anticipated Performers
This year’s Grammy awards on February 12th will feature a slew of great performances from Adele and Bruno Mars to the Weeknd and Daft Punk.
However, we are most excited for the combination performance that will take place with A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson Paak and Dave Grohl. Honestly, I am not sure what to expect exactly, but I’m sure it will be exceptional.
