Premiere: Devon Kay & The Solutions Stream Video for “252 Brighton Ave”A single to support the survival of independent venues
You saw it first if you were tuned in to our livestream with Devon Kay & The Solutions this past Friday—but we’re elated to share “252 Brighton Ave” with you today, a brand-new single from the band. Watch the video below.
The video, edited by Kay himself, collects footage from the group’s 2019-2020 tours supporting the release of Yes, I Can’t in 2019. Many of the venues depicted are now facing financial strain, thus the band has included a list of venues from the tour to financially support:
Green Lantern – Lexington, KY
Concord Music Hall – Chicago, IL
Cobra Lounge – Chicago, IL
Milestone Club – Charlotte, NC
Civic Media Center – Gainesville, FL
Mortimer’s Bar – Minneapolis, MN
Cactus Club – Milwaukee, WI
X-Ray Arcade – Milwaukee, WI
Gabe’s – Iowa City, IA
Beardon Brickyard – Knoxville, TN
The Waiting Room – Naperville, IL
According to the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), 90% of independent venues and festivals will cease to exist without federal funding to withstand the COVID-19 pandemic. Congress will soon vote on the RESTART Act, legislation focused on bailing out the music industry; you take action here.
