Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 4/12-4/18

The week’s calendar is brought to you by the questionable propriety of wearing shorts on a livestream. On tonight’s Sunday Songs, Joe Pug made the greatly debated decision to wear said article of clothing which he seemed to regret as soon as he was required to stand up. “Something about playing music in shorts, just makes everything a little less serious, right”, he clipped as his wardrobe decision was found out by the audience. As the weather warms up, I’ve been debating the decision myself when it comes to my work meetings, all on video these days. By the end of Joe Pug’s stream, I was feeling positive on the idea of shorts-wearing until Joe’s parting remark, a promise to wear pants next week.

Aside from keeping your pants on, another thing to remember for next week is to follow on The Hotel Cafe’s Instagram account.  Starting Monday, and for the next 20 days, The Hotel Cafe will have special performances streaming on IGTV to celebrate 20years of bringing amazing musical artists to Los Angeles and beyond. Guests include Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, James Bay, The Milk Carton Kids, Cary Brothers, Butch Walker, Zane Carney, Garrison Starr, Jay Nash, Brian Wright, Keaton Simons, Tim jones and oh so many many more!

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 3/29-4/4

72 hours of continues music streaming courtesy of livexlive plus two days’ worth of panels from WonderCon at Home and the wind-down of Spring Training baseball games made for a full weekend spent in front of the computer.  I’m starting to see in-person events pop up on some venue calendars which makes me wonder how many more nights and weekends will be spent in this way, surrounded by screens. Perhaps I should start preparing my back and knees which have very much benefited from this sitting on the cough version of concert-going.

This coming week features another round of live shows from Paste Magazine with acts such as Nick Waterhouse, The Driver Era, Run River North, Sir Sly, and Cary Brothers. All coming at you from my favorite space, The Hotel Cafe! We’ve also got a livestream from Lucy Spraggan who recently released one of my favorite new albums, Choices.

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.

Let’s see who else we can add to that list next week:

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 3/15-3/21

Daylight Savings hit me hard this year. But after I wrenched myself out of my bed and into some version of wakefulness, I stumbled into a Morgxn livestream and balance (nearly) felt restored! Usually this week, I’d be heading to Austin for SXSW and twice on this day in the past 10 years, I’ve seen Morgxn in Texas, so the stream held multiple layers of meaning.   

I am venturing into SXSW online this week and I’ve packed my schedule with talks, films, events, and, of course, music. Here’s the playlist of artists I’m most looking forward to: Kristen’s SXSW 2021.

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 3/08-3/14

SXSW is online this year. I’ve not been feeling any kind of way about it…until today.  Today, I registered for one of my favorite non-music events of recent years, Wisconsin’s Cheese Fest (this year titled “Cheesin’ Around at #SXSWisconsin”)! I’m not sure what to expect but something will be sent to my home (fingers crossed for cheese!) and there will be a limited capacity live event with Nick Offerman.  Now I’m getting excited to see what kind of magic my favorite week of the year might provide in this new, remote setting.

Last week, I continued listening to my top SXSW picks in between repeated listenings of Garrison Starr’s new album, Girl I Used to Be. I also was introduced to a couple great new artists (Jackson Wooten, Bones Owens), got emotional (again) with the re-stream of the Jagged Little Pill cast’s Holiday special, and celebrated with Jared (of Jared and The Mill) as he embarked on his new project, Wheelwright.

You can catch Wheelwright on Twitch next week to hear some of the new tunes (I am a fan). Also, we celebrate Garrison Starr’s album release, continue debating how we feel about the Clubhouse App with Monday Monday songwriter’s night and more:

Kristen’s Remote Streaming Concert Calendar: 3/01-3/07

I spent most of last week immersed in the Folk Unlocked Virtual Conference. This was, by far, the best example I’ve seen of a festival/conference/convention capitalizing on the virtual environment while maintaining the live experience and community spirit. I truly felt like I was “in it”. I caught about 120 artists over the span of the week, a lovely combination of known favorites (The Accidentals, Nadia Reid, AHI, Jade Bird) and new discoveries (Hannah Bethel, Holly Arrowsmith, Riley Pearce).

One of the highlights was the Global Music Marathon Closing Party, a massive, live zoom event where teams of international artists talked about their experience collaborating virtually while sharing some music in pre-recorded video collages while the audience joined in via a massive group chat. Even with people turning in from around the world, or perhaps because of it, the event held the kind of magic fostered by collaboration and community, that you can only really experience at a conference or festival. Well done Folk Unlocked!

I was so busy with Folk Festivals, I wasn’t able to catch up on new releases, but I’m very much looking forward to diving into Sydney Sprague’s debut album “maybe I will see you at the end of the world” and will endeavor to do so before her Twitch stream Monday evening.  Other picks this week include Dreamers streaming from The Roxy, Flawes celebrating the release of their new EP and a 3 day festival out of Minnesota called Land of 10,000 Streams.
