The world is on lockdown. That means no shows, and that’s a bummer. But, we’re all doing our civic duty by staying in, and that’s the silver lining.

There’s actually another silver lining: we can both do our civic duty and check out our favorite artists perform live at the same time. It’s called live streaming, and the hardworking promoters in our scene are using it to make the best out of a bad situation.

Honestly, we’re the luckiest scene, there’s so many streams to choose from. Keep scrolling for a few of our recommendations you can check out in the coming weeks. We will be updating this page as more streams are announced, so stay close to stay informed.

P.S. These streams are all free, so please, support your hardworking promoters and artists with a donation via Venmo or otherwise.

Dubday NYC

Tallboi Wade Appelton, a.k.a. DiCE MaN, and the Dubday crew continue to host their transmissions on a weekly basis.
