Seattle Radio Station KEXP Posts Virtual Shows
With the absence of live performances on the music landscape, bands are taking to the internet to help music fans fill their gig going void. That being said, Seattle radio station KEXP is compiling an ongoing events calendar of virtual performances from artists all over the globe.
From the KEXP website:
With music festivals being canceled and venues closed during the coronavirus outbreak, fans are yearning for some live music while they self-quarantine. Thankfully, many artists are turning to the internet to continue to reach their fans. KEXP is collecting a calendar of upcoming live streaming video concerts. We encourage viewers to utilize any digital tip jars or links to purchase music and merchandise, as many of these performers are losing income by not being able to tour.
There’s a lot of good content and performances from a wide range of artists (e.g. Ben Gibbard, Peter, Bjorn & John, Waxahatchie, Laura Marling) to help keep your mind off the news – at least for a little bit. Check out the calendar of shows here (times and dates are subject to change).
