Help out the Sunset Tavern Staff!

Hey y'all! Adam Prairie here, the talent buyer at the Sunset Tavern. We hope you're doing all right since we saw you last at the Sunset!


Unfortunately, as you might imagine, times have been tough for all of us at the Sunset since we've had to shut down to help battle the spread of the coronavirus. Due to the unique nature of the music industry, a lot of our staff unfortunately doesn't qualify for unemployment protections and are really hurting due to this sudden loss of income. The really tough part is that we currently have no idea how long this is going to last; we're currently fully expecting to be closed through all of April, and it could be longer than that. There's also no guarantee we'll be able to open normally once it's safe enough for the ban to partially lift.


So that's why we're asking for your help right now! I'm sure one of our bartenders has made you a tasty drink, or one of our sound techs helped make a live show sound amazing for you, or one of our door staff has helped you as you entered a show. These folks definitely need your immediate support, and please know that 100% of the net earnings of your donation will go directly to them to help them cover their basic living costs while we wait this thing out.


We've got some cool things to offer to sweeten the deal too!


$1, $10, $25, $50- You'll have our undying love and admiration, and we'll shout you out on social media for being a champ!


$75 - Sunset Tavern t-shirt, hat, or beanie – While supplies last! We've got some pretty cool designs that you'll be stoked about. If you choose a T-shirt, let us know your shirt size and we'll communicate shipping/ fulfillment timelines with you.  You will also be listed on our website with our thanks and gratitude.   


$100 – Sunset Tavern long sleeve shirt - While supplies last! Let us know your shirt size, and we'll communicate shipping/fulfillment timelines with you.  You will also be listed on our website with our thanks and gratitude.


$250 - A pair of tickets to an upcoming show + Sunset Tavern T-shirt, hat, or beanie - We'll get you on the guest list for a show of your choosing (based on availability), and we'll hook you up with a piece of Sunset merch.


$500-   A pair of tickets to 2 upcoming shows + Sunset Tavern T-shirt, hat, or beanie - We'll get you on the guest list for a show of your choosing (based on availability), and we'll hook you up with a piece of Sunset merch.


$1,000 – A pair of tickets to 4 upcoming shows + Sunset Tavern T-shirt, hat, or beanie - We'll get you on the guest list for a show of your choosing (based on availability), and we'll hook you up with a piece of Sunset merch.


$5,000 - we'll host a private party for you and 50 friends on a date of your choosing (weekends excluded) + a pair of tickets to 2 upcoming shows, + Sunset Tavern T-shirt, hat or beanie


Again, 100% of the net earnings of this GoFundMe campaign will go to our hourly workers. We're working really hard behind the scenes to make sure the Sunset itself will continue to exist (stay tuned for actions you can take to help on that front), but right now the immediate need is your support to help the folks who make the Sunset the venue you know and love. We sincerely love and are grateful for this beautiful, vibrant music community we have here in Seattle, and we can't wait to share our space with you again.


Thanks in advance for your support, and stay safe!
