"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

I know I've enjoyed a lot of the output coming from everyone from huge commercial acts to indie, boutique-style artists. I can't tell you how many times at the beginning of the global lockdown when I had anxiety, a cool video would pop up on my feed of choice and people were just serving up conforting, musical panaceas for the soul. It's been great for me as a music lover...hopefully great for music creators to have an outlet as well.

Indeed, I had exactly the same need. Many times happens to me that, just by putting a song, or a video with several songs I like in a row, made my sould calm a lot... however, I cannot wait to go to a concert, plenty of people, seeing the artist singing, improvising... that is magical

I really miss live concerts, too. The nearest thing right now are the actual live stream events--going on live while you watch them. It's great sharing those events with people in live chat. As close as we can get right now...

I have seen many of them it started right away, alot of them went to STAGEIT and then there was another site for it, then many just do facebook streams some do youtube and instagram ones. It is a good idea to keep something out there especially for indie artists that really only make money on shows, whether its clubs with 50 people its still their income, because streaming is nice but the revenue is pocket change at best. HOWEVER while all this is good for now it is not a replacement, though i fear many on the outside think it will be, and start streaming gigs and not do actual shows. Wont work long term at all, mainly because the artists especially those in small venues and gigs feeds off the crowd, one local artist here in NYC when he did his first live stream after the first song he said "damn this strange with no applause" basically you are looking at your screen to see what people type in, nice for now, bad long term.

Exactly, it is perfect for temporarly solution, but for long term it is too cold and lonely watch a concert through an screen... I don't know for me the beauty of sharing the feeling with many unknown people, the chance of talking to someone with similar interest and enjoying everybody like one... that won't be possible to reproduce by any technology, and is one of the parts I miss the most sad
