About

$1,065

    In November of 2014 The Sugar Bowl (formerly The Honey Pot) hosted its first show. Since then we have slowly but surely been hosting more shows, making friends and growing in an effort to create a space for friends and neighbors see live music for free. 

    The Sugar Bowl is located in North Oakland and operates by DIY/DIT philosophy. We are a female run, all ages safe space. We organize these shows in our own home and do not profit from any money earned, any proceeds earned go to touring bands for gas and food. We believe that live music should be accessible to everyone and that everyone making music should have a space to share it in. 

    Through this campaign we are trying to raise money to buy our own PA system. The past 11 months we have been scrambling to borrow various equipment (bugging friends, buying and returning etc) before shows and it has been a real bummer. Our own PA would give us the freedom to host more impromptu and frequent shows in other locations. Having this equipment would take some pressure off of the bands, allow for more events and keep The Sugar Bowl up and running. 

We truly appreciate any and all support!

 See you at a show real soon.

Risks and challenges

without a PA we will not be able to continue hosting shows
