Celebrate Bandcamp Friday With Columbus Artists

When the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic first began to sink in back in the distant, alternate universe that we'll call "March," Bandcamp was quick to respond by waiving it's revenue share, which already dwarfs compared to the costs of major streaming platforms, to support artists.

FIVE ALBUMS WITH COBRA: KALI DREAMER
