Bring Music Home, a first of its kind documentation of the current state of U.S. music venues due to COVID-19, has just launched their first-ever book. Created remotely over seven months during the pandemic, the book captures the stories of more than 200 music venues in over 30 US cities— with a particular focus on the unsung heroes behind them.
Over 60 independent photographers, producers, designers, and collaborators joined forces to donate their time to showcase the local venues that are integral to the creative culture of their communities.
At nearly 500 pages, this hardback book features venues like Stubb’s, Baby’s All Right, Tipitina’s, The Empty Bottle, Boot & Saddle, The Fillmore, 9:30 Club and more and conversations with artists from Alice Cooper, Dehd, Native Sun, and The Black Angels to Shakey Graves, Jesse Malin, Khruangbin, Hollis Brown, and more.
At $75 per book, a portion of the proceeds will directly benefit the National Independent Venue Association, as well as support over 60 creatives who helped make this project a reality, many of whom were directly impacted by the pandemic.
The book is available now and can be ordered here.
