Music in the Time of COVID-19
« on: March 17, 2020, 11:25:49 am »
I hope everyone is keeping safe.

I have heard about a number of musicians doing pay-per-view/livestream shows during the quarantine. If Los Lobos did something like that, I'd be all in. And if there are other ways to support the best band in the land during this difficult time, I'm open to those too.

Take care.

Well, my smart TV is apparently too smart for me but I eventually got things going in time to catch Dave. I liked his different approach to BB King's music. More understated.

Thanks for the tip.

How Fans Can Support Artists And Music-Industry Workers During The Outbreak



That article is especially good because it lists websites that are compiling these virtual live shows and updating the lists daily. Thanks.

Just had a conversation with Mando and he told me the guys are trying to do something,possibly on Zoom.Said he`ll keep me informed and I will pass any info as soon as I get it.Not sure of time frame but looks like sooner than later.Hey,the guys gotta be chomping at the bit themselves. None of us has been through this shit before.One thing I would suggest that I have not heard talked about with this fucking virus is not having more than two people in a car.I want to lose my fucking mind when I see 4 or 5 people get out of a car.WTF!Are people really this stupid?I guess so.And it should only be parent/child,spouses,and that's pretty much it.No siblings.no grand parent/grand children,though with single parents there could be exceptions.And especially no friends.I know we are social animals,but until the stupidity stops,this battle is just going to drag on.And on.And on.Hang in there folks.Be smart and we`ll get through this mess.

Well, I missed Los Texmaniacs bit have heard a couple of live-streams now via Facebook: Mia Borders and Anders Osborne. It isn't an in-person show but it's interesting, a live TV performance without a studio audience. Tips made through Vendo. Better than nothing!

I am really eager to see what LL comes up with.

Also, Steve Berlin produced the Greyhounds' new album, "Primates". The first released song, "Tune In", is here:

Stay safe.

Howdy All,

Jonesing for live shows is a definitely a thing.

Texmaniacs are on FB every Wednesday afternoon. Michael Guerra was on tonight - said he'll do it again next Friday. Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires have been putting on some great shows daily - some really heartfelt John Prine covers this week.

Check out respective FB feeds for details.

A couple of articles about the music biz, the second one by Michael Dorf of City Winery (one of LL's regular venues).
