Since we can't go out to see a live show, Valley musicians are bringing the show to us.
If you're a dedicated fan, or simply want to introduce yourself to our eclectic local scene, all you have to do stream a concert. You provide the drinks, and they'll give you the music to ease the isolation we feel right now.
Below is a list of local bands we know are streaming shows right now. (Another resource is the covidconcertseries message board on Facebook.) If you know of any more, drop us a line at email@example.com and we'll add it to the list. These shows are free, so please donate or pick up some of their merch if you can.
