TURNING BEER INTO MONEY FOR THE CAUSE
After playing 2 sold out shows for 6,000 people just days prior, you could imagine how excited Sylvan Esso fans were to pack the house on the tiny Lagunitas Petaluma Amphitheater stage. Coupled with that unbridled excitement of seeing such iconic artists in an undersized venue, we turned beer into $20,000 for Planned Parenthood!
In our earliest #LiveAtLagunitas season, you could imagine our excitment to host the multiple Grammy-winning, all-around super hero Emmylou Harris! The best part? This day in the sun was not just for her loyal fans but became a full day of fundraising for the non-profit animal rescue Bonapartes Retreat. After an all-day affair including merchant fair, live auction and Lagunitas beer dinner, $30,000 happily went to the dogs.
There are many ways to soothe a music fans’ soul, but sometimes a direct route is through the easy slide of smooth, straight-to-the-feels, right-in-your-soft-spot vocals. Here’s some of our favorite velvety-voiced friends like Lake Street Dive, Big Thief, Son Little, The Wood Brothers, St. Paul & The Broken Bones and more!
