Jack White is the only name I know on that bill. 

I would recommend checking out Cage the Elephant, Beach House (Zebra is a great song), Alt-J, Leon Bridges.

And definitely check out Nathaniel Rateliff.  His self-titled album Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats is my favourite album of the 2010s.

I've enjoyed some Dead/Garcia related online festivals recently. And prior to that I became a deadhead over the pandemic, watching the weekly concert streams with @cineater :dance:

Theres lots of good streams on nugs. 

But festival streams can be a bit of a drag unless you can watch it on a portable device and move around during it, watch outside for a bit, etc. But they are really fun to know that you are taking part in an online event. :headbang:

Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats are playing their debut album in full tonight.



Awesome.  Thanks for letting me know.

Great week for online concerts.  I'll be watching this and checking out Pearl Jam's concert at Safeco field on September 4th.

I don't want to sit in front of my computer for 2 hours. I would rather a concert be on PPV and I can see it on my big screen tv.

Metallica just had a concert over the weekend. Not sure how much the tickets were?

Almost every virtual concert/festival I've seen so far has been hosted on a platform that can easily be watched on a TV. 


I've "attended" a few of these virtual festivals and concerts now over the Summer. Some have been better than others, and on the festivals you get a wildly varying level of quality of content. Wacken World Wide has been my favorite virtual festival so far - good to see some of their archival footage in HD, and a healthy dose of new performances for the streaming event. My favorite virtual concerts have still been the two the Dropkick Murphys have done though; their annual St. Paddy's Day gig done in a rehearsal studio, and then a few months later their livestream from Fenway Park.
