THIS SUMMER • EVERY SUNDAY • 3PM • JUN 12 - AUG 14
We're super stoked to provide our community with these free shows -all summer long! It's been a rough couple of years for all of us, but ESPECIALLY for the local Downtown Olympia business community, many of whom have taken on large amounts of debt to make it through the pandemic. As a result, we'll all be feeling ramifications of COVID for quite some time to come.
Olympia has built its economy off the thousands of state workers commuting into Downtown every day. But the pandemic has pulled the rug out from under us - most state workers are now telecommuting, and there's no indication that they'll be back in office any time soon. Which means no pre-work coffee. No lunch meetings. No after work drinks. As a result, pretty much all businesses we know are still well below pre-pandemic revenues.
So we're providing these free shows to help y'all get back into the habit of coming Downtown and supporting your local businesses. Because, frankly, WE NEED YOU. We highly encourage you to come Downtown for these shows early, and stay late, and make it a point to visit some of your favorite businesses.
We also highly encourage you to donate to the bands, and to purchase their records/swag, as they've given us an incredibly good deal in order to provide something special for our community. You can donate through the MERCH•BEER•TIP page on the day of their performance, and we'll also have a tip bucket set up for cash donations.
