We’re not going to waste time on an introduction and get right into it. Right now, many of you are out of work/getting close to being out of work, and feeling a pinch now. It is a scary time for many of us, not just because of COVID-19, but because of the financial impact, lack of security, and fear for the future when all this has passed.
It’s a stressful shitshow and you might be thinking more about making a living than staying alive right now and that is not fair. Many of us might need aid to help get through this “staycation” we did not ask for.
Please put on your loungewear, wash you damn mitts, stay the fuck home, and check out the below list of resources and ideas, a lot of these are for artists, but we looked for some non-artist resources as well!
Jewish Free Loan Association – You do not have to be Jewish to apply, the organization grants fee-free and interest-free loans to those affected by COVID-19
If Tending Bar Is Your Job here is a grant for you!
State By State List of Assistance and Aid

Guys, this all sucks, let’s try to cut back on the anxiety related to all this by sorting out the stupid life shit so we can all focus on staying healthy (and re-watching season 2 of Mindhunter).
We can’t wait to reopen the shop, set up new dates for canceled shows, and see all of you again.
Until then, stay away from us ya crazies.

On March 7, 2020 we’ll be presenting shows across the globe as part of our 8th annual Burger Revolution world-wide party! All you have to do is set up a show with whatever bands / artists / freaks you like and we’ll present and hype it under the Burger Revolution banner!

We are stoked to announce the lineup for our 9th annual Burgermania showcase at the South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas. Taking place at Hotel Vegas on March 21 and 22, Burgermania 9 includes over 80 bands/artists and an official SXSW showcase section in the event.
Sponsoring Burgermania 9 are eco-conscious sun care brand Sun Bum, turntable and cassette player manufacturer Crosley, music business, performance, and production school ACM@UCO, and professional audio gear manufacturer TASCAM. These sponsorships have made it possible for us to launch artist grants to help offset some expenses for those playing Burgermania this year.
