“Every year we look forward to Midnight Preserves as a way to connect with our fans and old friends,” said Jaffe in a press release. “Just about everyone I’m friends with today I’ve met through music or a musical collaboration that came out of Midnight Preserves. It’s a blessing to have met so many incredible humans and to have shared our stage and their stage.”
