These are some crazy days, and it's very easy to spend a lot of time confused, hurt, or angry. But as you eventually find out, living that way long-term is exhausting and ultimately unproductive. Music can curse the darkness or it can light the campfire. At the beginning of 2018, we made the decision to select a single Musically Worth Cause each month; an issue that we care about, either due to location, relationships, or personal experience. For each of the shows that month, we donate part of our proceeds to that MWC, and try to use our various social media platforms to educate people on the topic in the days leading up to the show.
Here's some of our past MWC's with links to their homes on the web. Paper Moon encourages you to check them out and, if you feel so inclined, support them.
