The Revivalists – “It Was A Sin”

We were honored to be a part of NIVA’s Save Our Stages Festival and to help support some of the most important bastions of music and culture in the country. Getting back on stage, especially at Tipitina’s, was rejuvenating and cathartic in a year where moments of release have been all too scarce. We wanted to share a little piece of that with you today. “It Was a Sin,” an anthem of redemption and healing, felt especially appropriate. We’re all in this together, and we’ll all get to see each other again soon enough. Save Our Stages Fest was a three-day virtual benefit festival with artists and organizations rallying to the aid of independent music venues at risk of closing their doors permanently. Featuring original performances and commentary from diverse talent across genres and shot live at iconic indie stages, #SOSFest aims to preserve our nation’s independent live music venues. The festival is raising funds for NIVA’s Emergency Relief Fund, where any member organization can apply for support – please consider helping by clicking the blue Donate button. About NIVA: Formed at the onset of the COVID-19 shutdown, the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), now represents more than 2,800 members in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. These independent venues and promoters were the first to close and will be the last to fully reopen. NIVA’s mission is to preserve and nurture the ecosystem of independent live venues, promoters and festivals throughout the United States.
