    Save the Scene NYC is a digital livestream benefit concert organized by New York band Pan Arcadia in partnership with the non-profit Sweet Relief; which for nearly three decades has helped musicians and performance crews cope with medical expenses.     

     COVID-19 has killed some of our most beloved artists, strapped thousands of other performers with hospital bills, and robbed many more of their livelihoods. Club closings and concert cancellations have left the indie music industry struggling to make ends meet. Sweet Relief provides urgent assistance to musicians, as well as tech and support staff. Donations to Save the Scene help pay for medical care, lodging, clothing, food and other essential living expenses stemming from the pandemic.     

    In 1993 Lou Reed performed at the first Sweet Relief fundraiser. To mark the anniversary of Lou's birthday on March 2nd, more than 35 local artists are rallying to support their fellow performers and celebrate the vibrancy of New York independent music.

The world has been shocked by the devastating effects of COVID-19. We are aware of the enormous medical and financial burden that COVID-19 is having on the music community and we are actively taking steps to provide assistance where it’s needed most. Due to massive cancellations, artists are struggling to find the means to make ends meet during these unprecedented times.

Sweet Relief is here to provide immediate assistance and we have created this DONOR-DIRECTED FUND with a limited amount of funds available to be used specifically for musicians and music industry workers affected by the Coronavirus. Funds raised will go towards medical expenses, lodging, clothing, food, and other vital living expenses to those impacted due to sickness or loss of work. Those wishing to apply must provide the following:
  • A completed Sweet Relief COVID Application.
 
  • Supplementary documentation proving that at least 50% of all income comes from working within the music community
 
  • Proof of cancellations and bookings and/or relevant medical documentation
Please note: You do not need to be sick to be eligible for assistance from our COVID-19 Fund.
