Over the past several years, The Back Room at Colectivo Prospect has joined the ranks of small stage venues bringing quality live music and artistic performances to SE Wisconsin. The Back Room hosts around 160 shows per year in our former roastery and is managed through a partnership with The Pabst Theater Group. The Pabst is part of the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), an organization recently formed to try to save independent venues and promoters across the country amidst pandemic shutdowns. Venues were the first to close and will be the last to fully reopen.Without support from Congress, 90% of NIVA’s independent venues, festivals \u0026amp; promoters across America say they will be forced to close their doors forever. Congress will be voting THIS MONTH, so they need your help NOW. Go to www.SaveOurStages.com to send a letter to Congress. The form for the letter is already filled in, you just have to add your name. It takes less than 30 seconds, and the link will automatically populate with your Senators and Congressional Representative based on your zipcode.
