Bandcamp, our online music vendor, announced plans to donate their share of artist sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund on Friday, June 19 (Juneteenth). In their announcement, they also encouraged artists to look for ways to support racial equality in their community.
In response, we are donating our share of sales to local social justice organizations (information forthcoming) and also encouraging fellow Bandcamp artists to take up the cause.
Jeff Anderson, our brother-in-music, will be participating as well.
Here’s what to do:
- Mark your calendar for Friday, June 19, 3:00 a.m. through Saturday, June 20 3:00 a.m. EDT (or midnight to midnight PDT)
- Buy music from June IND on our Bandcamp page.
- Buy music from Jeff Anderson on his Bandcamp page.
- Already have our music? Gift your download to a friend.
- Can’t wait until Friday? Donate directly to the NAACP LDF here.

Black lives matter.
