Sara Bareilles is set to headline two small club shows in New York to benefit Rockwood Music Hall, a club on the Lower East Side where she played in the early days of her career.

“In 2007, I had the privilege of playing one of my first career shows at Rockwood Music Hall on the Lower East Side,” she shares on Instagram. “This venue has always been a symbol of the determination and resilience of New York’s aspiring musicians. Today I am reaching out to each and every one of you, because it is at risk of closing down.” 

Sara will headline shows on Friday, June 30, at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. as part of a Preserve Rockwood campaign, which will feature shows throughout the summer by such artists as Ingrid MichaelsonElle King and more.

She adds, “Rockwood Music Hall has provided a launching pad for countless successful musicians – now it’s our turn to give back. Together, let’s preserve the future of music and protect this invaluable space for generations to come.”
