GoFundMe Launched For The Staff Of Saint Vitus

Saint Vitus forever.

Saint Vitus Bar

Saint Vitus has been closed for just under one month now due to a questionable visit by the New York City Depart Of Buildings in the middle of a Mindforce show. Saint Vitus has assured everyone that they're only temporarily closed and far from dead, but still – the Vitus doors are closed, meaning everyone employed there is suffering.

Saint Vitus bartender Jim Carroll has now launched a GoFundMe to help everyone that works there stay on their feet financially. You can check that out and donate here, and read Carroll's full statement below.

"Hello, my name's Jim Carroll and I work as a bartender at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn. As many of you may know the venue was recently shut down by the Department of Buildings due to circumstances outside of the staff's control. As the owners try to remedy this and get the establishment open again the bar, door, production and sound staff are left without income for an indefinite period of time.

"The bar staff relies heavily on tips from the patrons that come to the shows and events at the venue. The production staff depend on the doors being open and there being shows and events in general. Unemployment is an option for some but not all. With the venue doors closed we're left to scramble at an already slow time of the year.

"This goal is a projection of what the staff is losing out on over the month of March and what we've already lost in February. A reopening is unclear and will probably go well beyond this point. Whatever is raised will go 100% to the staff (with the exception of any taxes and fees) to help them with rent, bills, and the high cost of living in nyc. This is not to raise money for the bar to get its doors back open. Also, if anyone has any employment/gig opportunities send them our way!

"Hopefully see you all again soon!"
