Lowbrow Palace is one of the most beloved indie venues in west Texas. I know that's the case for me, many locals, and bands who have graced the Lowbrow stage. There is something so magical about it that cannot be explained.
Think back on your first concert at Lowbrow. Were you under 18 or over? Where you watching a well-known band or supporting a local band? Just reflect. Beautiful memories right? At least I hope so. I know they were for me.
At the beginning of this upcoming month, the Lowbrow Palace will be having a fundraiser. The venue and its employees have been affected by the on-going pandemic, but there is a way to help. Beginning at 7:00 p.m. MST on Wednesday, September 2, fans can tune in to watch two of the city’s hottest rising acts, Roman Rouge and The Swell Kids, perform a special mini-concert through IG Live on @FitFamElPaso.
All proceeds will be donated to Lowbrow employees and local residents. However, donations will be taken before, after, and during the live event. You can Venmo (via @TheLowbrow-Palace) or Paypal (via firstname.lastname@example.org) until Sunday, September 6.
Need an incentive? To encourage donations, the venue is also offering special prizes that will be offered to randomly selected donors as a thank you for their charitable contributions (minimum $20 donation) that include the following items:
In addition to everything, Lowbrow is "also a proud founding member of the National Independent Venue Alliance (NIVA), a national nonprofit organization formed at the start of the pandemic that advocates on behalf of music venues across the country, over 90% of which are on pace to be closed in the coming months without federal relief and financial support."
Please free to donate! Anything helps! The COVID-19 has been affecting this venue and venues across the United States.
