We’re well into this new temporary way of life of being stuck at home due to coronavirus. Retail stores, bars, restaurants and now movie theaters have closed their doors to the public. This means you’ve probably been sitting inside cycling through the same TV and movie options on Netflix and Hulu, as well as music playlists. However, there’s good news for music lovers. Several musicians are planning livestreams for fans to hear some stripped-down songs and ask some questions.
Check out the livestreams and movies announced and going down this week, and keep checking back as this list will continue to be updated.
Tomorrow, we’re #AtHomeWith @tylerrjoseph from @twentyonepilots for a two hour hang, bouncing honest conversation off great music. Join us here https://t.co/ZfP5Szur9e from 9PT / 12ET / 5pm GMT @AppleMusic pic.twitter.com/5QoAoYTOAP
