As many of you have already heard, Bandcamp will be donating every cent of the money they make from sales tomorrow to the American Civil Liberties Union and other organizations that assist refugees and immigrants. The #NoBanNoWall event is a protest against the executive order issued on January 27 forbidding anyone from seven Middle Eastern and East African countries from entering the United States, and against the government’s plan to build a wall along the American-Mexican border.
Many labels and artists have joined with Bandcamp and will be donating their proceeds from tomorrow’s sales to the ACLU as well (more than a hundred of them are listed on this page, but there are a lot of others). It’s an opportunity to support artists and support a cause with just a few taps of a button.
Any sales for the 24 hours starting at 12:01 a.m. PST (3 a.m. EST, 8 a.m. GMT) will be included in the total amount donated- meaning both digital and hard copies ordered through Bandcamp.
We’re aware that most readers of Heathen Harvest don’t need a lot of direction when it comes to buying music, but if you’re stumped for ideas, you could always have a look at what our writers chose as their Best of 2016, or check out the Artists’ Edition. (For that matter, some of the artists from affected countries that Bandcamp has showcased are pretty interesting.)
