Several artists over the past week have been streaming live shows from their homes to help music fans with social distancing practices recommended by the CDC. Thursday night’s Luck Reunion virtual concert had hundreds of thousands tune into a Twitch channel to help various charities and fans cope with the cancellation of Willie Nelson’s annual “anti-festival” in Austin, TX.
Courtney Barnett and Lucius were among the guests for the live-stream concert, and now they will be hosting their own show with several of their friends. Among the talent contributing to the cause will be Sheryl Crow, Nathaniel Rateliff, Sharon Van Etten, Lukas Nelson, Fred Armisen, Jonathan Wilson, Waxahatchee, and more to be announced.
The live-stream will take place from the comfort of each artists’ home on Sunday, March 22 at 6 p.m. EST/ 3 p.m. PST on Instagram Live through the Lucius account. The charity, Oxfam’s Covid-19 Relief Fund, helps those in need with soap delivery, clean water, and sanitation services.
