Headliners Music Hall Partners With RPM To Support Local Charities
Posted by rpm
Headliners Music Hall is celebrating 20 years as Louisville’s premier independent music venue with an eclectic four-day anniversary concert. The celebration is a thank you to the community for 20 years of overwhelming support as Louisville’s go-to locally-owned and locally-operated music hall.
The venue has partnered with RPM to donate a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales and merch sales to benefit some of Louisville’s most deserving, music-based charities: Amped, Girls Rock and MERF. More about the charities is below.
Girl’s Rock: Girls Rock Louisville empowers girls and gender non-conforming youth from all backgrounds by exploring music creation in a supportive, inclusive environment. We view music as a force for change and community building and as an opportunity to develop self-confidence, self-expression, and involvement in social justice.
AMPED: To put kindness, guidance, and support into practice with the use of music education, music creation, and performance that will help our youth to become caring, career minded, and community focused citizens who will impact their environment in a positive way.
MERF: The giving spirit is what has kept Musician’s Emergency Resource Foundation (MERF) funded since their very first benefit for Marvin Maxwell. At first, it was a collective fund that musicians could pay into and count on in times of need, but has since become a legal non-profit in 2004 with a dedicated board of directors who vet and vote on aid requests, helping working music industry professionals in times of crisis.
