Live from the Living Room: This Week’s Artist Live Streams (6/15-6/21)
Your weekly itinerary for CDC-approved live music experiences.
In case you’ve spent the month at a remote desert retreat, we’re currently undergoing a global pandemic requiring everyone to remain indoors as much as possible, consequently depriving us of any and all live music. The music industry was quick to remedy this financial blow as best they could with live streams, and we’ve already seen some great covers (and interesting living rooms) a few weeks into our collective quarantine.
We’ll be updating this page daily to keep you up to date on who’s doing what, where, and when (all times PST).
