IHEARTCOMIX’ Franki Chan says: “LA GIVES BACK is exactly that, our community giving back. I wanted to gather together as many of my favorite promoters in LA as I could to make something great happen. This city has made all of us who we are and I’m proud to be a part of a community that can work together.
For IHEARTCOMIX, this is our holiday party. We wanted to celebrate our year and the community we belong to. I feel strongly that Los Angeles is the best city in the world for music and creative energy. Over the decade+ that I’ve lived here I’ve seen this town change so much for the better. It’s not just the talent that is amazing, but the sense of community that makes it special and has drawn so many people here.
However, the unplanned consequence of that growth has been the rise of the homeless population in LA. It’s our responsibility as a community to address this problem and fix it. As we grow, we must bring everyone up with us. Hopefully this event shows our city and the world that we can stand as one to create positive change.”
Restless Nites quote:
2016 was an amazing year us at Restless Nites in so many ways, and for that we’re very thankful. But it was an equally difficult year for many other reasons, and harder so for a lot of people out there living in the shadows of this bright city. When Franki got in touch about this event, we were honored to lend our time and energy to help our fellow Los Angelenos in need. We’re looking forward to embracing our friends on the dancefloor, in the spirit of giving some of that warmth back to those who may be without it during these colder months. Music for all. Housing for all. Love for All.
Emo Nite quote:
LA is an incredible place that has given us some amazing opportunities but for many people who aren’t so lucky, this city is a daily struggle. When Franki came to us with this chance to give back to LA through doing what we love, we jumped at it. We’re honored to be able to do something like this with so many talented and creative individuals who want to do the same thing.
Brownies & Lemonade quote:
“B&L is happy to be a part of LA Gives Back, not only to celebrate a fantastic year for independent music in our city, but more importantly to bring some joy to our homeless community that so frequently gets overlooked.”
Late Night Laggers quote:
“As lifelong LA residents, our goal for Late Night Laggers has always been to contribute positively to the city’s culture. Walking around the streets of LA, we’ve watched it go through so many changes over the years, but we’ve also seen the consequences that come with those changes for the tens of thousands of homeless residents in the city. By being involved with LA Gives Back, we’re excited to contribute a little bit more to our hometown and are thankful for the opportunity to do our part through music.”
Space Yacht quote:
“Los Angeles is our home and we owe everything we are to the community here. Many of the parties on the poster are the ones we attended growing up, and we’re incredibly honored to join forces with them to share a positive message to the city. This will be a historic night.”
Ham on Everything quote:
“Being apart of the la music scene is something we have always dreamed about. We are forever grateful for all the friends and opportunities this city has given us. LA Gives Back is a great opportunity for everyone in the community to come together for a great cause!”
