raccoon it forward
Since the Raccoon Motel only holds 85 people, the ability to make each night electric and meaningful to a performer and a crowd is attainable and so I’d like to fill the room every night, while not being a burden for those who could get the most out of this offering — young professionals and college students (who haven’t decided where they’d like to land after graduation) who don’t have the available funds to experience the nightlife they like — a nightlife that they’ll seek out in a bigger city where a higher wage will likely support it. Here they could get the best of both worlds — affordable living, access to the best bands in the world and a reason to stay and build their family or create the kinds of creative businesses that abound in cities like Austin and Nashville. Could you help others who can get out, but can’t afford it — the Quad Cities’ future — see the music they want to see, potentially ensuring that they’ll stick around the area and make it better and more interesting with us? If you can’t make it out, maybe you can help someone else get out. We will take what you’re willing to contribute and pair those funds up with show-goers — creating excitement and a hub in a very stimulating downtown that will serve the entire Quad Cities. Please help us make this explode. Contribution levels range from $180 annually to $3,000. Please consider helping us make the Quad Cities music scene thrive.
