Looking for some good live entertainment? Well Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard is going to be hosting daily livestream concerts from his home studio that you can tune into and watch. He said from the bands social media accounts that he would be streaming daily around 4pm during the coronavirus shut in.
I know you are all really freaked out right now. I am too. And while I’m proud that we’re all doing the necessary things at the moment to help flatten the curve, I know it has left us all incredibly isolated.
But because we’re all going through this nightmare together we are quite literally NOT alone. Our lives and stories are all linked, maybe more now than they have ever been.
Be it with DCFC, Postal Service, or solo I have always been grateful for the honor you have bestowed upon us by choosing to congregate en masse around our music. Some of you have traveled great distances and/or shelled out large sums of money to see us play and that has never been lost on me. So in this crazy and unprecedented time, I’d like to return the favor by coming to YOU.
For the next few weeks I will be playing songs everyday from my home studio. We will be streaming on Facebook at 4pm PST daily. We’re still working out the details but I’m hoping to take some requests and maybe even have a guest or two stop by digitally. The first show will be tomorrow. It will assuredly be a little wonky and glitchy but we’re gonna do our best.
See You Tomorrow.
This is great for anyone who needs some social interaction as well. Since YouTube allows you to comment on livestreams it means you get the added bonus of talking with other fans and can potentially meet new friends online. Which a lot of people may need right now. Social distancing is one thing but you really should keep in touch with others to maintain some sanity. And now that Ben Gibbard is going to give us some cool free concerts what better way to make a connection with him and others than diving into that comments section?!
