Detroit singer-songwriter (and occasional Metro Times contributor) Sara Barron performed a recent livestream concert in her attic.
The coronavirus pandemic and a ban on large gatherings has put Detroit's concerts, dance nights, art gallery openings, comedy sets, and other cultural events on hold, but local creatives aren't letting that stop them. Many are using technology and turning to livestreaming
to perform for their followers to watch safely on their phones or computers while we all ride this virus out.
They're adapting to changing times, so we are too. You can now submit livestreaming events
to our online calendar, just like you would submit your concert or art exhibition. For the venue, just select "Livestream Event." and then classify the event like you would any other (food, music, art, etc.).
You can also submit your events to [email protected]
If we get enough of these, maybe we can bring art and culture listings back to our weekly print edition.
Stay safe, Detroit, and remember to wash your hands.
