Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats will be kicking off the Guild Theatre in Menlo Park, Calif.’s “Doing Good At The Guild” concert series on Aug. 16. The upcoming show will raise funds for Rateliff’s foundation, The Marigold Project, which supports economic, racial and social justice issues.

“We are beyond thrilled to be the first show in this series, and to have the opportunity to give away exponentially more money this year as a result,” Kari Nott, executive director of The Marigold Project, says in a statement. “Our very first grant in 2017 supported farm workers in California. Drew and The Guild family are building something very special for their neighbors and we can’t wait to kick things off next month.”

The Menlo Park date arrives after Rateliff’s performances at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, Calif., on Aug. 13 and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Aug. 14. The Guild Theatre’s “Doing Good At The Guild” series allows artists to perform at the newly re-opened 500 capacity venue to raise funds for their own foundations. The independent, non-profit venue includes a sound system provided by Meyer Sound with the interior having been designed by Ken Fulk.

“As a nonprofit, our mission is rooted in trying to help artists however we can,” Drew Dunlevie, president of The Guild Theatre says in a statement. “We’re delighted they’re going to be out here in playing the Greek in Berkeley and the Hollywood Bowl, so we can grab a night off and support the important work Nathaniel and the Night Sweats are doing with The Marigold Project.”

Rateliff went out on tour last summer and fall, selling out his Oct. 17, 2021 date at Brooklyn Made in Brooklyn, N.Y., grossing $14,850, according to reports submitted to Pollstar’s Boxoffice. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, he sold out the Chicago Theatre on March 6, 2020, grossing $212,996. His two shows at Minneapolis’ State Theatre on Mar. 3 and 4, 2020 sold a total 4,081 tickets, grossing $234,176.
