Light In The Attic & Friends at Home Starts April 3

During this time of quarantine, there are a wealth of wonderful online performances and concerts happening. One that I really grabbed my attention is the one starting today, April 3, at 4 pm PST, that has been organized by the fine folks at Light In the Attic. 100% of all donations will go towards MusiCares’ COVID-19 Relief Fund, assisting those in the music community affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Since it is starting in just a couple hours, I wanted to quickly make mention of it. So, I will spare any extraneous links or videos and cut to the chase.

The performances will be streaming live on Light In The Attic’s Twitch and YouTube channels. There will be new performances from legendary artists whose music the label has re-released over the past 20 years, along with appearances by LITA’s friends, each covering songs from the label’s renowned catalog.

Each musician will be performing a song from their home during quarantine – from Rio to Tokyo; Cardiff to Austin; Barbados to Italy – and there will undoubtedly also be the always fun element of spontaneity that happens when you are playing at home.

Check it out when you can.
