"Musicians learn how to reach their audiences online amid stay-at-home order"

https://www.startribune.c...569440822/

.

Philadelphia rocker Adam Weiner, whose band Low Cut Connie counts Minneapolis among its best markets, figured his team lost about $100,000 by canceling tour dates into May, including a big one at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

.

[...]

.

“I’ve never felt like my music is connecting with people more than it is now,” the Low Cut Connie frontman said, referring to a series of performances he has been streaming through Facebook every Thursday and Saturday from his living room.

.

Weiner throws in a lot of cover songs — including Prince just about every night — and he throws off a lot of clothes, too, as if it was just another night at home in his underwear.

i must admit, my mind has fantasized a Prince acoustic like set during Covid from PP with a set list like:

Dear Mr. Man

The Dance Electric

Colonized Mind

Money Don't Matter 2Night

Sign O' The Times

Dreamer

Elephants & Flowers

Resolution

Live 4 Love

Black Muse

For The Tears In Ur Eyes

I Wish U Heaven

Sometimes it Snows In April

The Cross

i know its futile, but somehow just thinking about it, what it might've been like, and listening to several of these songs myself has been a small source of joy during a dark time

Very nice article thanks. I do know about Patreon, many Youtubers I follow they use it because they are facing issues with Youtube incomes.

I also hear many artists they are doing concerts or events in Streaming, at the beginning I think some of the for free in Streaming platforms, but I think nowadays probably paying.

Also, I heard that for theaters, they are planning to allow half of the capacity and respecting the security distances, but here I read many discrepances, some artists sais that is not worthly doing it that way, others they just want to feel the people, no matter if they are less... in conclusion, I hope this situation finish soon so we can enjoy a great concert like before
