    Support Independent Venues with Our New Protect Live Music Shirt

    Support Independent Venues with Our New Protect Live Music Shirt

    As an independent publication with a deep foundation in live music, Consequence of Sound wanted to do our part to support the many venues facing hardship during pandemic. That's why we were thrilled to see so many of our fans stepping up to aid the struggling concert industry by purchasing our "Protect Live Music" benefit long sleeve shirt. To keep the momentum going, we're proud to launch a second version of the design, with proceeds once again going towards independent music venues in their recovering efforts.

    Designed again by Steve Fiche, "Protect Live Music Version 2" features new original art that pays tribute to everyone's favorite concert activity: moshing. The piece was created as a tribute to the continuing hope we may all see a return to independent venues sooner rather than later -- for the sake of the businesses themselves as well as music in general.

    Printed in black-and-white on a 100% preshrunk cotton a black, sapphire blue, or natural tan long sleeve shirt.

    To help support small venues in their recovery efforts, 50% of net proceeds will be donated to the National Independent Venue Association's (NIVA) Emergency Relief Fund.

    CBD for Dummies: The Benefits of CBN

    CBD for Dummies: The Benefits of CBN

    Chances are you’ve heard of CBD and THC, the most well-known compounds of the cannabis plant. However, hemp is loaded with numerous other minor cannabinoids that are gaining attention fin the wellness community. One of those is CBN, a non-intoxicating compound that typically is created when THC degrades over time. Though not as widespread in its availability as CBD or THC, CBN is gaining traction in the world of hemp products. Below, we've compiled some of the potential health benefits of this little known but powerful cannabinoids.

    Sleep Aid

    Perhaps one of CBN’s most prevalent uses is to help those struggling with insomnia. Multiple studies have been conducted suggesting that CBN is an effective sleep aid, with some of the earliest research dating back to 1975! CBN's proven sedative effects means even microdosing can be beneficial if you're looking to catch some more Zzzs at night.

    Appetite Stimulation

    It's fairly common knowledge that THC can be used as an appetite stimulant, but some avoid it due to its psychoactive effects. Those interested in similar health benefits without the standard side effects of marijuana may want to look into CBN. Studies have shown that CBN increased the appetite in rodents, though further research is still needed into its impact on humans.

    Anti-Inflammation

    In another study, CBN was shown to alleviate arthritis in rodents. Preliminary research suggests the compound could be equally effective in helping people with rheumatoid arthritis. While further study is needed on the exact correlations between CBN and arthritis, the anti-inflammatory properties of CBN could be a huge benefit to anyone struggling with chronic pain.

    Neuroprotective

    Researchers have used CBN as a treatment for ALS and found that it was capable of delaying the onset of the condition. This study suggests that CBN could be used as an effective tool in staving off neurodegenerative conditions, while more research is currently ongoing. Over at the Consequence Shop, we carry a variety of CBN products to suit your needs, including gummies and tinctures.

    Consequence Gives Back to Independent Music Venues and Artists

    Consequence Gives Back to Independent Music Venues and Artists

    Since Consequence of Sound was established in 2007, live music has been an integral part of our foundation. We wouldn’t be who we are today without independent venues and all they contribute to the culture, and our future is inextricably tied to their continued success. As one of the last remaining independent music and pop culture publications, we understand clearly the impact the current crisis has had on the music community. Searching for some small way to do our part in supporting this collective legacy, we launched Consequence Gives Back.

    When the pandemic hit, independent venues were some of the first businesses to close and will be among the last to fully recover. While touring remains grounded, they have little to no income, and many remain in danger of permanent closure. These sanctuaries of live music and entertainment have long been the gateway for many artists’ careers, a refuge for fans, and a linchpin of local economies. 75% of artists’ income and millions of community jobs are tied to the live event industry. The damage caused by the loss of these beloved venues would be immeasurable.

    Unlike many businesses, venues must wait for a national reopening strategy before resuming operations. Until then, they need the efforts of the entire music community to ensure they survive -- which is where Consequence Gives Back comes in.

    With your help, the Consequence Gives Back campaign will continue our ongoing efforts to aid these independent venues, as well as artists, during their time of need. Our goal is to help sustain these essential businesses as we await the day family and friends can finally return to the joy of live music events once more.

    To that point, we recently launched our "Protect Live Music" shirt and are donating 50% of all net proceeds to independent venues. 

    Proceeds from the sale of our recyclable face masks, CBD products, and other Consequence merch also go towards benefiting the independent music community through the MusiCares' COVD-19 Artist Relief Fund.

    Protect Live Music: Our New Shirt Promotes an Important Cause

    Protect Live Music: Our New Shirt Promotes an Important Cause

    Consequence of Sound made our name by being the go-to source for live music news. That's why it's been particularly painful for us to watch the devastating impact the last year has had on the concert industry. We know that live music is one of our most precious artistic resources, which is why we're proud to do our part to help support the independent venues that bring us these shows with our new "Protect Live Music" long sleeve shirts.

    Designed by Steve Fiche, the shirt features an original piece of art celebrating the live concert experience on the front, with a hand-drawn rendition of the Consequence logo down the sleeve. Printed in black on a 100% preshrunk cotton red or gold long sleeve shirt, or on a black shirt with a yellow-grey print.

    To help support small venues in their recovery efforts, a portion of proceeds will be donated to the National Independent Venue Association's (NIVA) Emergency Relief Fund.
