The Future of Live Music?
Well, there hasn’t been a lot of live music to write about as of late and I am so saddened by all the festival cancelations. I know everyone is affected by the current situation. I feel as though, my musical life has been taken from me but it could be a lot worse!
Although I do have more time at home, writing songs and playing every instrument I can get my hands on, it’s not the same. What has been my saving grace is these live music streams! The musical community has stepped up and delivered something completely unexpected and ingenuitive. I have seen more concerts on "Couch Tour" this past week than I ever have. Like: Relix Live Stream, Nugs.net, Andy Frasco doing his podcast live and other bands playing in their homes or even in empty venues. Other festivals and bands have released their live shows and flooded social media and the internet with music. Another great resource for live streams is Virtual Festival, an aspiring promotional page that has recently started to combat the lack of live music. Check them out. Perhaps I should start reviewing some of these streams? As there is a lack of live music to write about what do you all want to read? To be as honest as possible, I have already paid the 120$ yearly fee to keep this site alive and truly want to use it. I have been seeing so many bands come together and share their live music every day and it has inspired me. I will be doing the same, playing music, talking with y’all and putting myself out there more.
Also if you would like to contribute to www.jambandpurist.com I am now accepting donations at Venmo: Robert-Fadley and PayPal via firstname.lastname@example.org. I gotta keep the lights on somehow. Anything would sincerely help. Look for upcoming content here and on my Instagram, Facebook and YouTube channel. I have some musicians stopping by and I’m hoping to share with as many of you as possible. I don’t get a lot of social media attention but if you are reading this please consider supporting our site. Thank you so much and our prayers go out to John Prine and all the others fighting this crazy shit. Stand together, just do it from a safe distance.
