Virtual Tip Jar was set up as a way for our community to give back to three dedicated live music venues that have given the freaks, fiends, and losers a place to call home over the years. 100% of cash raised will be split between three bloody amazing venues in the hope that our community still has a place to call home on the other side of COVID.

- The Last Chance Rock & Roll Bar
- Whole Lotta Love
- The Bergy Seltzer

A quick update and MASSIVE THANK YOU!!!!

While the muso’s are adjusting to a life without any foreseeable gigs and the punters adapt to isolation and online content, our thoughts are with the empty venues doing everything within their power to stay afloat. The Last Chance Rock & Roll bar, The Bergy Seltzer, and Whole Lotta Love are well-loved gems of Melbourne’s underground live music scene. These venues are not only institutions for Australia’s upcoming artists, musicians, and creatives but also a home, fostering a culture of unity and acceptance within our community. While we all face individual challenges and grapple with the restrictions of COVID 19 life, I am personally distressed at the possibility of these venues closing down, and there being no venues when we can return to the new normal.

With that in mind, the Virtual tip jar was born!

We launched Wednesday evening to raise funds and relief for these much-loved venues that have helped foster our scene over the years. I have been absolutely blown away at the response this has had, having raised almost a third of our goal in less than a week!!!

A massive thank you for each and every one of you who have generously donated!!!

If you have not already, it would be greatly appreciated if you could share this on your various social media platforms.

Much love
