Some 367 venues from all 50 states will participate in Independent Venue Week, which takes place today through Sunday.

“Independent Venue Week exists to highlight the importance of independent stages all over the country, from the busiest of cities to the smallest of towns,” says Cecilie Nielsen, Director of Special Projects at Marauder, the firm that runs the American iteration of Independent Venue Week, in a press release.
