Should the following Tier 6: up to $240,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Community category be approved?

Abstract

Anchored by live music venues (replicas of iconic real-world venues), Indie Village will include over a dozen music venues, art galleries, booksellers, social clubs and other retail and entertainment. Indie Village will be one of the first 24/7 active neighborhoods in Decentraland with nightly live music performances.

Key relationship with the founder of NIVA Rev. Moose. NIVA (https://www.nivassoc.org/) will use its huge influence to promote Decentraland, and along with its member venues and supportive artists, bring new fans to Decentraland from around the globe.
