Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 3/22-3/28

2020 brought a lot of loss and heartache, but nothing hit me harder than the last-minute cancellation of my favorite week of the year at SXSW. Last week, SXSW returned, in an online format and I’m pleased as punch to report that the event was by far the best conference/festival/online event I’ve attended in the past year. I could tell you all about the tech trends, up and coming innovations and inspiring conversations. I could rattle off my list of top films and TV shows watched or detail new products I sampled or interactive events I attended. But the overall takeaway is that the magic of SXSW was there and for me, this feels like it could be the turning point to slowly getting back some of what was missing from the past year.

The only thing that fell drastically short of the usual expectations for SXSW was the music showcases Yes, I was able to discover some new talent and sure, it was fun to see the artists perform in their own countries or backyards. The chat happening alongside the performances also made it easy to connect with both the bands and other like-minded fans and industry professionals. However, nothing will ever ever be able to replace live music, that intangible connectedness it fosters and the feeling that hits when watching a new favorite band perform for the first time.

Based on what I saw last week, moving up the ranks of “must see” acts include Nadia Reid, Hachiku, Alexander Biggs, Ryan McMullen, and Lilla Vargen.
