“Crumbs from the Crowd to Pay the Bills,” Cake Shop Featured in the New York Times

We’ve paired with Pledgemusic and joined forces with Cake Shop to help save the venue that feeds New York’s independent music scene. According to The New York Times, Cake Shop “has earned a reputation for helping local bands develop, and though it is a small, unpretentious club, it has become an important tour stop on the national circuit for alternative groups. It is also one of the last clubs of its kind in Lower Manhattan, as rising rents have pushed the scruffy bars that nurtured underground rock across the East River into Brooklyn.” Read more about why Cake Shop needs your help and why you should donate in the New York Times, and click here to head to their Pledgemusic campaign page.
