With these trying times and multiple tour dates cancelled, many musicians are scrambling. With many of us, this is our career. So, what can you do to help? EASY! Purchase a CD, a tee shirt, tune in to their live videos and donate on their websites, etc. Some of us in the music community have been hit pretty hard, including contraction of COVID-19. They need your support now more than ever, so please, keep the music alive, and support your local bands!
What a time to be alive, right? Just when we thought the end of cabin fever was in sight, COVID-19 rears its ugly head and wreaks havoc on...well....society in general. Gigs are being cancelled faster than a hoochie coochie, and we're suddenly forced to figure out how to get our music out there, and how to do the thing we do best: entertain.
But fear not! We have begun to use this little known invention called the internet to our advantage! Many have begun live streaming shows from living rooms, basements, closets, crawlspaces...you get the idea. And myself and the Blue Diamonds will be no exception! We will begin broadcasting a series of short sets, titling it the "Modern Problems" Virtual tour! The videos will include a link to the website, which will have a donate button on the home page, should you feel the urge to show us a little monetary support 🤑
This is uncharted territory for us all, and to be completely honest, a bit frustrating, but I can't stress enough how important it is to support your favorite local bands now more than ever. We're all in this together, so let's jam out to get through these crazy times!
