Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews, Brandi Carlile & More Aboard For ‘All In WA’ Virtual Benefit Concert
Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews, Brandi Carlile, Sir Mix-A-Lot and Macklemore are among the acts on the lineup for All In WA: A Concert For COVID-19 Relief. The virtual benefit concert will take place on Wednesday, June 10 at 7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET on the JamBase Livestreams Calendar via Amazon Music’s Twitch channel.
Proceeds from the concert, including individual donations under $1 million that will be matched by Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos up to $25 million, will benefit the newly launched All In Washington campaign. The campaign is run by what is described as a “coalition of public officials, companies, philanthropic leaders, community foundations, United Way organizations, community leaders, frontline nonprofits, and individuals” with the aim of “providing food donations, housing assistance for youth and families, small businesses support, and health services for essential workers” to those in Washington State facing hardships.
Death Cab for Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard, Allen Stone, Mary Lambert and The Black Tones round out the initial lineup of musicians expected to take part in All In WA. Amazon is providing $10 million to sponsor the event and cover production and marketing expenses. Donations can be made via AllinWA.org. Watch a video shared by the organization at its launch:
