It’s no secret that the music industry and all of those – from the performers to the venues to the studios to the punters – have all been affected, and in most cases decimated, by the rules and laws governing lockdown and restrictions.
While the argument will continue to rage over the rights and wrongs of the way things are being handled, one fact remains true throughout.
The music industry is suffering.
With no end in immediate sight and many in the industry uncertain of their futures, HEAVY has decided to start a weekly segment called FCK CRNA to highlight affected businesses and industry workers and hopefully shine a light on a different key component of the music industry each week.
These businesses need our support now, more than ever, so please, read on and spread the word about not only the businesses we focus on each week but any business you know of that is or has been affected.
The only way out is for the music industry and those involved to unite and support each other in any way you can.
We must be here for one another.
This week, FCK CRNA turns the spotlight on Melbourne’s iconic live music venue, the Bendigo Hotel, as we speak to Dave Collins.
