Help X-Ray Arcade Through Pandemic

X-Ray Arcade is an independent music venue based in Cudahy/Milwaukee, Wis. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to cancel shows and shut down bar service for the next month or more for everyone's health and safety. Our staff, and our business as a whole, has been left in a difficult financial position: Live music pays our bills, and unfortunately, live music at the moment is also a major health risk. But it won’t be forever, and we want to continue supporting our community once the COVID pandemic has run its course.

We’re working hard to find different ways to pay our bills (have you seen our great new merch?!) while we keep closed to the public and do our part to keep our city, customers, staff, and hospitals safe. Our staff needs to eat though, and our mortgage and utility bills are - unfortunately - entirely impervious to infectious disease. 

So, in the wake of 2 months of carefully-laid plans evaporating in about 48 hours, we’re asking for your help: 

We’re hoping to raise $15,000 to cover lost pay to our incredible staff who can't be at work for an unknown amount of time and fixed costs to keep our club afloat. 

10 owners work together to keep X-Ray running. None of us are pocketing anything from this fundraiser. #SmallBusinessRelief

Please share, and make a donation if you can. Rest assured that donations will go directly to those on the ground floor of our space who have worked tirelessly over the last year to support the Milwaukee music community, and touring musicians all over the country.

Thanks, and stay safe!
