Live stream Virtual Gig List: Ben Gibbard, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Lissie, Rhett Miller, and more

Thao Nguyen of Thao and the Get Down Stay Down




In this unprecedented public health emergency, concerts of all sizes have been cancelled or postponed around the world. Minnesota musicians are among those connecting with audiences online as artists and fans practice the social distance required to slow the spread of COVID-19. It’s a scary time, but as in other tough times, people are turning to musicians and other artists to lend comfort and inspiration.
