The Victorian live music industry is in trouble and is asking for your help.

Venues from around the state have joined forces to form Save Our Scene (SOS), and they have penned an open letter to the government for immediate and ongoing assistance to help them through the current crisis.

SOS states that without help, "Victoria's small clubs to our iconic band rooms, the places where you go to listen, dance, share and celebrate music will start to disappear. Stages that nurture emerging artists to those that house Australia's and world’s biggest touring acts will go, and who knows what will replace them."

SOS are asking people to read and sign the letter, spread the word, and Save Our Scene. You can join the cause by signing the petition here and by staying up to date via and @saveoursecene.vic on Instagram.
