Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 1/25-1/31

Currently listening to the new album from Moon Taxi. Silver Dream came out on Friday and was celebrated with a livestream event from Nashville. I was able to watch the stream along with a friend who is in Massachusetts. In my experience, Moon Taxi is best served with friends as the band’s infectious and upbeat tunes elicit the kind of happiness and dancing that is augmented when surrounded by others.  The new album is exactly the vibe I need right now so doing my best to ride this wave into this next week. Anyone else miss the concert high that would go on for days?

Next week, it’s all about music discovery across the pond.  We’ve got three days of music at the Americana Fest UK.  It’s also Independent Venue Week in the UK with events every day starting around 4am PST and running into the afternoon, including a continuation of the Scruff of the Neck series from last week (SO good!).  Check out Independent Venue Week’s website and YouTube to see what’s streaming.

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 1/18-1/24

This is usually the time of year when I’m really digging into the announced SXSW artists. No artists have been announced for this year’s virtual event so I’m feeling the void typically filled by listening to hundreds of random new artists a day. It’s the first time in what feels like years that I’m caught up on all the press releases and artist announcements in the inbox! 

In the vein of music discovery, I’m looking forward to a livestream series starting next week on the Scruff of the Neck TV Twitch channel. Presented by BBC Radio 1’s Abbie McCarthy, it’s sure to introduce us to some rising British bands! I already spot a few of my 2020 faves on the list (Larkins, King-No One, Corella).

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 1/11-1/17

Let’s talk about a pandemic positive that ends with me being the proud owner of a postcard featuring two human-sized rabbits, with holes in their ears, squaring up to duel with pistols…

Is that an intriguing enough set-up? One of my favorite 2020 reads was Jasper Fforde’s The Constant Rabbit, which indeed features rabbits as depicted on the postcard.  Without live concerts, books have become my best escape these last several months.  The real pandemic positive, however, has been my discovery (or perhaps re-discovery) of the independent bookstore. These fun, niche shops around the country have been moving their fun, niche events online available to all! One such event at Murder by the Book in Houston, Texas was a conversation with Jasper Fforde and Matt Haig (The Midnight Library).  The shop had these signed postcards in support of the event so, voila, pistol-toting rabbits displayed on my bookshelf. A clear win!

As for music wins, next week I’ve bookmarked music streams from Suzanne Santo, JR Moore (Ingram Hill), Anais Mitchell, and more:

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 1/4-1/10

Well, 2021 feels largely the same as 2020. I started a new puzzle, re-set my Goodreads challenge, and here I sit researching “live” music to watch on my computer in some attempt at remembering what it was like to be front row at a concert. Maybe I’ll somehow discovery my new favorite band?  There is always hope!  So far, the sound of my 2021 has been a back and forth between Sarah Jarosz’s “Johnny” and Cleopatrick’s “Good Grief”. For those interested in what my 2020 sounded like, here’s a link to my Spotify playlist.

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 12/28-1/3

I’ve hit a new stage of live music withdrawal, the dwell on how much you miss your favorite bands as you make memorabilia collages and cry stage. I acquired some frames last week.  I brought them home only to notice then that one of the frames held a movie poster signed by none other than Chris Evans. I spent Christmas Eve re-purposing the frames, replacing the signature of Captain America with the signatures of Biffy Clyro.  Christmas was spent wallpapering my yoga space with setlists, ensuring positive vibes only during meditation. Christmas also came with a surprising number of livestreams including ones from Gavin James, the always entertaining Callum Beattie, and Max from The Arkells who was getting Chinese delivery for those spending their day alone.

Net week we have a number of ways to virtually celebrate the new year.  And maybe I will finally get around to sending out some Holiday cards that have a link to my 2020 Music Mix in it…maybe…

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 12/21-12/27

You know what I’ve been missing most these last couple of weeks? The Hotel Cafe Holiday party. Aside from being one of my favorite events of the year, it is also my gateway into the holiday season. This holiday season has largely been ushered in via UK-based livestream events including a socially distant Kaiser Chiefs transforming “I Predict a Riot” into a Holiday classic, Roe giving us a beautiful rendition of “River” in an abandoned, yet decorated hair salon, and Sam Fender singing “Winter Song” in a hoodie on a grand piano surrounded by an orchestra. All very 2020. Last week also included sets from Tyler Hilton, Ferris & Sylvester, Bones UK, and the long-awaited reunion of The Milk Carton Kids!

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 12/14-12/20

Current mood: Rag’n’Bone Man singing “None of My Friends”.  I love the song (a Liz Lawrence tune) and I could enjoy listening to Rag’n’Bone Man sing the phone book, but there was something about the cover, heard today on a charity livestream, that felt…disorienting.  And this has been my mood lately; knowing everything is just fine, but still feeling like things are not as they should be. Anyone else feel like this?  To finish the Rag’n’Bone Man story, he ended his set with “Skin” and I felt awash with calm and comfort so here’s to hoping my mood will follow suit.

To help with a musical re-alignment, lots of exciting events next week including a set from Curtis Peoples, a Virtual Concert from Bandsintown, and Christmas concerts from Canada and the UK.
