Many artists are combatting the postponement and cancellation of concerts and festivals by delivering live stream performances online. Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard is the latest artist to commit to live streaming solo concerts daily from his home studio.
“Be it with DCFC, Postal Service, or solo I have always been grateful for the honour you have bestowed upon us by choosing to congregate en masse around our music,” Gibbard wrote in a social media statement. “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 favour by coming to YOU.”
Every day at 7:00 p.m., Gibbard will live stream on YouTube and Facebook. Check out the stream here.
